One-time capital of the island, in fact if not in name, La Oliva still bears a trace or two of grander days. The weighty bell tower of the 18th-century Iglesia de Nuestra Señora de la Candelaria is the town’s focal point of sorts, with its black volcanic bulk contrasting sharply with the bleached-white walls of the church itself.
