This charming town was the capital of the guanartemato (kingdom) in pre-Hispanic times and is justifiably famous for its extraordinary archaeological sights. It has a bustling and attractive historic core centred around the gracious Plaza de Santiago with its neoclassical Santiago de Gáldar church. The square is also home to one of the oldest drago trees on the island, dating back to 1718. It's located in the patio of the 19th-century Casas Consistoriales, where the tourist office is situated.
