Where to shop in El Hierro
Shopping in El Hierro is as different as the island, untouched by mass tourism, is itself. The place where lasting holiday memories will be made is Valverde, the capital, located in the north-east of the island. Visitors will fall in love with this peaceful city, whose flagship when it comes to shopping is the Calle Doctor Quintero street. With its cobble stones, flanked by stately facades, it is worth stopping to look for a souvenir as you wander around.
Shopping in La Calle and delicious food en El Secreto
La Calle, which is how residents refer to the main street, is home to a few clothes boutiques, shops selling gifts and accessories, banks, book stores, restaurants, cafés and several eateries. El Secreto is one of them. This vintage hide-away defies convention with its colour scheme and floor lamps and offers its visitors tasty food and good times, just like La Plaza bar. For foodies with a sweet tooth who want to taste something sugary or pick up something to take home, Mamá Mari has traditional rosquetes (a doughnut-meets-biscuit creation) and designer chocolates.More information
