It is the mother church of the town of San Sebastián de la Gomera and of the whole island. It is located in the heart of the old town. The riches of the patrimony that keeps behind its walls includes the coffered Mudejar, Renaissance tables and diverse images and pictorial works.

Had a wonderful day trip to La Gomera from Tenerife. It was wonderful to explore such and unspoiled island and the scenery was wonderful. Thoroughly recommend the trip if you get a chance to go.

We visited la Gomera in January and would definitely go back. First we went up into the mountains on a tour and looked at all the forest and plant life up there.

Full of beautiful artefacts and paintings. Said to be the church where Christopher Columbus prayed before setting off to discover The new World.

A beautiful building, especially look at the roof and maritime murals. A church that you are able to see the pride of the congregation within.

There is not much in the centre of San Sebastian but there are 3 parallel roads that are relatively well preserved. In one of these roads lies this church. It is very colourful inside and should not be missed as part of a trip.

It was fine to wander in and out, except during services. The tourist office was running free multilingual tours from the square outside, which were definitely worth joining.
