San Sebastián de la Gomera in detail

Sights

San Sebastián's colourful streets, compact town centre, ancient nobles' homes and other scattered sights offer an intriguing wander through the island's history. Most attractions are somehow related to Columbus (in either real or contrived ways). Begin at Plaza de las Américas, with its buzzy terrace bars and 2018 Columbus statue, and cross Plaza de la Constitución, shaded by enormous Indian laurel trees, before strolling up Calle Real. The tourist office provides leaflets for self-guided walking tours.
