Situated in the northeastern section of La Palma, between the ravines of Herradura and La Galga, San Andres y Sauces was one of the first colonial towns on island.
Its historic quarter is characterized by cobbled streets and houses built in the traditional local style. Here you will find one of the oldest churches on the island, San Andres (16th century). Inside, it contains images of Cristo del Gran Poder and Nuestra Senora del Rosario.
Another church of interest is Los Sauces, which preserves paintings and Renaissance Flemish carvings from the hermitage of Nuestra Señora de Montserrat.
San Andres plays host to the nature spot of Los Tilos, declared a Biosphere Reserve. This space houses one of the most important 'laurisilva' forests on the Canary Islands.
