San Sebastián de La Gomera
The Essential
San Sebastián is the capital of the island of La Gomera, and Christopher Columbus stopped here in 1492. Follow in the explorer's footsteps and visit the church, Iglesia de la Virgen del Asunción, and the tower of the Count of Gomera, before taking in the fine houses that stand along the Calle del Medio, and taking a dip in the Playa del Cueva. San Sebastián, on the eastern side, is also the island's main port.
