Introducing Hermigua

A popular home base for those on walking holidays, the go-slow town of Hermigua, 16km outside San Sebastián, is absolutely dripping with that authentic Gomeran feel. It’s also often dripping with water – this is one of the greyest and dampest parts of the island. The town itself is strung out along the bottom of a lusciously green ravine stuffed full of banana plants and other subtropical flora, its houses like beads on a chain running down the middle.
