Valverde

Valverde, the capital of El Hierro, is the only capital on Canary Islands which is not located at the coast, but in a mountaneous region with an altitude of 600-700 meters.

The town consists of steep and narrow streets, whitewashed houses with typical architecture, and generous gardens.

The most remarkable sight of Valverde is the church Santa María de la Concepción Photo dating from 18th century, with sculptures of great artistic interest. The city hall, which faces the church, is a fine example of the traditional architecture of Canary Islands.
