Vereda do Chão dos Louros is located in a green area which is part of the European Network of Sites of Community Importance - Natura 2000 Network.

As such, the lush green scenery accompanies the entire walk, which crosses the indigenous Laurissilva forest.

Here, evergreen trees that belong to the Lauraceae family predominate, such as the laurel (Laurus novocanariensis) or the Til (Ocotea foetens).
