The smallest village in El Hierro
Tiñor is the smallest village in the smallest Canarian Island, located in the north-east of El Hierro. This hamlet has a particularly special charm, thanks to its delightful traditional homes, made with a base of black volcanic rock and flat, English-style roof tiles. The white walls of many of the houses contrast with the greens of the surrounding countryside. Hidden behind the hills, just a few kilometres from the island capital, Tiñor is a tiny jewel that is well worth getting to know.
A picturesque hamlet crossed during the Descent of the Virgen de los Reyes
The Descent of the Virgen de los Reyes, one of the most important processions of the Canarian archipelago, passes through Tiñor. To arrive at the small hamlet you have to leave the main road from Valverde to San Andrés and El Pinar, but it really is worth it to discover this village of picture-postcard beauty. The best way to appreciate it is to park your car and take a walk through its streets, enjoying the purity of a completely rural setting – and don't forget your camera.
