Old maps and drawings of the city

Do go inside the tower, preferably with a torch as the drawings are difficult to see in the dim light.

Just a tower which was not open when we went but nice to look at the exterior. We were on Gomera for two weeks and never saw it open, but it is in a nice park.

Torre del Conde is a 15th century Spanish fortress located in the Villa de San Sebastián de La Gomera. It is a military-type building. Its function was mainly of representation of the majestic power, and counted on the lack of modern armament on the part of the natives.

Good to see such an old defensive tower complete, but there are no "interpretive" boards or information and no access when we were there in March, despite what it said ion the guide book.

The Torre del Conde is the oldest military fortification in the Canary Islands. Set in pretty gardens it's worth a visit.

Visited here during a trip to SS, pleasant grounds and gardens and an interesting piece of architecture and history. Worth a 20min stop as not too much to read

We visited on a cruise ship and enjoyed wandering around the manicured park in which the tower is situated. The tower is reputed to be the most southern Medieval building. You can climb up the steps to view the park and beach but cannot go inside. Sadly no information boards to tell you more of its origin and purpose.
