San Sebastián de la Gomera/Spain

Introducing San Sebastián de la Gomera

The capital of the island in every way – economically, bureaucratically and historically – San Sebastián has an appealing historic centre with shaded plazas and pedestrian-friendly streets. Its main claim to fame is that Christopher Columbus stayed here on his way to the New World, and you’ll learn more about the famed explorer here than you ever did at school, as his every footstep (real or imagined) in the town has been well documented for visitors.
