El Hierro is a less talked about Island among the Canary Islands but one which is worth visiting and even spending a holiday on. It has a little of everything and is actually a very good spot for those who would rather choose some peace and quiet during their holiday in Spain.

Valverde is El Hierro’s capital and funny enough it is not located on the coastal line of the island as it is the case with most of other capitals in the Canary Islands. This capital sits on region which is mountainous and even though it seems to be odd, it has wonderful views of the island and the surrounding areas and you will find great panorama from this area. This town has narrow and steep streets making it the more interesting. You will also find typically designed whitewashed houses lining with generous beautiful gardens.

Just like any other capital, it is expected that Valverde has some points of attractions. Even though it does not have much as far as the attractions are concerned, it still does have a few which cannot be missed on a tour through the city or within this small island.

The church: Santa Maria de la Concepcion is a remarkable sight that is definitely worth visiting in the city of Valverde El Hierro. It was built in the 18th century and the most outstanding features on it are the sculptures all of which have great artistic value and interest. The church is big in size and it can therefore not be missed by anyone.

The city hall: it faces the Santa Maria church and it is a great piece of architecture. This is a building showcasing the Canary Islands traditional architecture and therefore it is a treasure worth being checked out. A lot of things can be learnt from here especially about the history of the islands.

Valverde has modern structures which are developing with each passing day and it is therefore not as hard to find great accommodation within this yet to be known island. It is always fun and interesting to be among the very first few who get to explore and discover new things within an area and this city and the island is general is waiting for just that. You will be amazed at just how much you get to enjoy the city and the island even with the little reputation to its name.
