Parador de la Gomera
settingSeaside (ocean front)
Traditional Canary Island Parador.
A heavenly setting with fabulous views of the ocean (set as it is on a cliff with Tenerife and the Teide in the background) gardens brimming with sub-tropical exotic plants, and a typical Island architecture, make up the main reference points of the lovely old-fashioned Parador de la Gomera.
But that’s just the exterior. Inside its bright walls encrusted with volcanic rocks, the combination of Castilian and Isabelline style decoration really do provide for an authentic La Gomera experience. Even the sweet smelling aroma of the local wood, which is used liberally throughout, adds to the distinctive atmosphere. The parador is also replete with many maritime references and navigational instruments as part of its furnishings. This is, after all, the island of Columbus from which he set sail on the way to discovering America.
The other major plus point of a stay here must surely be the island itself. It remains one of the least affected by tourism in the whole of the Canaries and visitors here are still received with an authentic welcome. La Gomera has long retained its strong indigenous rural culture. Couple this with its breathtaking volcanic vegetation and scenery, such as that found in the Garajonay National Park, for example (a World Heritage site) and a stay here becomes a thoroughly compelling experience.
