The Ethnographic Park of La Gomera
A space to discover the perfectly preserved customs and traditions
A rich artistic expression and traditional elements available to be discovered by curious visitors who value the essence of the place.
A journey through the past shows the island identity which has been passed on from generation to generation. A space with elements which evoke customs such as the ‘gofio mill’ (gofio is a type of flour) which is perfectly preserved and numerous pieces guarding stories that talk about how people lived in the past and traditions that are still maintained on the island.
In one location, a local handicrafts and delicatessen store, a traditional orchard and a restored Gofio Mill with a large antiques collection exhibition. La Gomera is an island which, up to 30 years ago, most of it's economy and lifestyle was linked to agriculture and farming. Still deeply settled in their culture, it is a basic insight in the spirit and landscape of an island that still feels like settled in ancient times.
In our open farm and exhibit you can learn and see how the gomerans lived, survived and worked. By the ancient Convent and Hermigua original settlement surrounding the river, it is an exceptional landscape of palm groves, cornfields and small family houses.
Only 30 minutes away from San Sebastian and the main Seaport of La Gomera, Los Telares has been for years an unmissable touristic spot. The North Route (GM-1) will bring you through the most authentic landscapes of La Gomera, including the 400-years-old Convento of Santo Domingo, the beautiful davits of Hermigua or Vallehermoso, Agulo Town or Garajonay National Park Visitors Center.
