Visit here to see the Tower
Oct 2021 • Couples
Saturday 16th October and we visited this small Park in the centre of San Sebastián.

The most notable thing about the Park is that it is where the ancient and historic Fortress of Torre del Conde Park is located.

Close by the Tower there is a small plaque unveiled by King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia on 28th November 2006. It commemorates the centennial of the first royal trip of Don Alfonso XIII to the Canary Islands, on a State Visit in 1906.

There is also an odd assortment of rusting industrial machinery dotted around the Park which are features in the well maintained Park. There is also a children's play area.

Nice place to have a stroll around, don't think we would have bothered with here had it not been for the Tower

We saw this beautiful stone-and-whitewash Torre del Conde, which the most important military architectur in Canary islands. It is located in a fine park. Unfortunately, the fort was closed when we arrived.

Interesting fortification

The compact structure reminds us of days not at all as peaceful as now. Surrounded by a well kept park inviting for a stroll.

Small, attractive town centre park

The main attraction here is the historic tower in the centre of this park which forms a green space in central San Sebastian. The park also boasts some large trees.

Things used to be built to last

It is a fifteenth-century military vestige that remains standing remembering past times of the Gomeran capital. It is a very interesting walk around it as part of a walking tour of San Sebastián de La Gomera.

One of the only attractions in San Sebastian

A small tower in the middle of the San Sebastian. One of the only tourist attractions in San Sebastian which has more or less murky history.

the history is the interesting part

In itself this tower is not so very special, but the history with Columbus his wife living there compensates for that.

Nice centrepiece in a chilled park
Nov 2019 • Couples
Spent the day island hopping from Tenerife to La Gomera and stayed in San Sebastian. Its fairly easy to find this landmark in the town and it stands tall in the centre of the main park. Is white alabaster walls create an contrast to the surrounding greenery of the park. My advice is to get a coffee from one of the many cafes in the area and grab a bench in the park and just drink in the view before continuing to explore the town.

Unexpectedly charming tower
Oct 2019 • Couples
We heard a lot about the tower an the legend associated with it. But in reality it looks like a small (thought quite tough:) simple beauty
