A visit to Garachico is not complete without going to this peaceful cloister with its Canarian pine pillars and collection of seashells. Some of the carvings on display were not altogether suitable for a monastery.

Entering this convent, means entering a place of rest and quietude. Nice original building with a well-equipped exposition hall. We visited an interesting exhibition about endemic plants of the Canary Islands.

Well worth the two euros to enter! This is a lovely old convent with internal courtyards and suspended wooded balconies. There are many old and interesting photos from the last 150 years of Canarian history. Not more than 15 minutes to take in the lot,...More
