Interesting tower

Visited last week, interesting looking tower, can climb up platform on side but not go inside. Situated in a nice peaceful park. The oldest tower in Canaries apparently.

This is a seriously important historical building associated with Christopher Columbus. It is situated in a pleasant park in the centre of the town. There is really no information outside and you can go up to a balcony on the first floor. Much more should be made of it and I would only recommend going if you are in the... More

This is the only building that has survived since Christopher Columbus era, he worshipped here before setting sail on his voyage of discovery. I was unaware you could go inside but I had a lovely walk within the grounds.

You can walk up the tower, a couple of levels, but not to the very top. Historically interesting (background given by free tourist office tour). Housed a free display of historical maps - great if you're into maps. The surrounding park (grass + imported flowering trees) provides a quiet shady place to sit. Kids play, some brought in from schools.

I didn't have the opportunity to visit the Torre del Conde indoors (and I don't even know if it's possible) but it looks really nice in the middle of a park. The coloring is interesting and catches one's eye.

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
