In the middle of a park, fun to learn the history

Easy to find, right up from the waterfront, and surrounded by a nice park. On a Sunday afternoon, there were groups of kids kicking a soccer ball around the grass.

There is a tourist menu which seems to be from freezer and prepacks. Plenty of food and the service is good. We did enjoy breakfast which is a pick and mix self-service.

You can't come to San Sebastian de la Gomera without coming to the place where, in 1488, Beatriz de Bobadilla barricaded herself in after her husband, Hernan Peraza the Younger had been killed by local indigenous Gomerans. He had been having a sexual relationship with a local girl, Yballa, and the Gomerans took their revenge when they found out what... More

This tower is all that remains of the church where Christopher Columbus worshipped before he set sail on one of his many discovery expeditions. You can go inside and climb, almost, to the top of the tower. - the latter floor was closed off!

This tower is one of the most visit monuments of La Gomera. Offcourse there are not so many real monuments. The nature is the most important one.

There's a collection of old maps, plans and drawings of the island, town and the building - climbing the steep stairs to upper levels is an interesting challenge:-)
