This is one of the loveliest churches in the whole archipelago. Rather squat, with two wide aisles, the church's appearance is pleasing. Inside there is a mural, and an abundance of paintings, with beautifully decorated surrounds. The mudejar ceiling and general ambience should make La Iglesia de la Asuncion de San Sebastian de La Gomera a priority for anyone visiting... More

This a lovely church in the middle of the town. Very easy to reach . Not allowed to go all the way to the main altar , but near enough to get a feel for the whole church. Needs only a few minutes to look around but well worth the effort.

Nice litte church in a nice little town. It is adorable so why not take a peek. Dark wood and dark, guess local stone and a historical place. Not so many churches to see in La Gomera really.

This plain and simple church is the most interesting and historic building in San Sebastian – almost certainly the top attraction - and as such it is well worth a brief visit - 5 or 10 minutes is enough. It is a most handsome building and in both the exterior and the interior there is an interesting mix of styles.

We found this church simply walking along the streets of San Sebastian. As we go into most European churches we pass, large or small, we entered this one and were pleasantly surprised by it's beauty. Curiously, the roof is decorated in only one corner over a chapel.

A peaceful church; which we were informed used to be within a monastery, then a school, but now only the church remains. It was simply decorated and filled with the aroma of lilies and flowers. An opportunity to light real prayer candles, as opposed to the electric flickering replacement prayer box was denied! Highlight Was the extended bell ringing at... More
