San Sebastián, the island's capital and port of entry, was Columbus's last port of call on his voyage to discover America. This small island boasts two treasures which have been declared part of our World Heritage: Garajonay National Park and Silbo Gomero, a whistling language used to communicate across the ravines.
Hiking in Garajonay National Park will take you back in time, where you will discover species that disappeared from other parts of the planet millions of years ago. This lovely place is the site of an equally beautiful legend, to which it owes its name. Two lovers, Gomera princess Gara and Jonay of Tenerife, on realizing that their love was impossible, chose to drive a spear through their bodies and throw themselves off the highest peak on the island.
From its spectacular location above the town of San Sebastián de la Gomera, the Parador is an oasis of peace in the middle of the Atlantic, the perfect spot to enjoy the beach, natural surroundings and garden, where you can sit in the sun and breathe in the peace and tranquility.
