Parador El Hierro
El Hierro – "La isla chiquita" – the little island at the edge of the world. This is the least visited and most peaceful of the seven main islands. Its mountains drip from the almost continual clouds that cover them – thus providing precious irrigation water for the rural and largely agricultural lands and villages below. Valverde is the islands quaint inland capital. It rests in misty, introspective serenity.

The Parador El Hierro is located right next to the sea, opposite the Roque de Bonanza, in a serene and isolated setting where the sea and mountains meet. Each room of the Parador has a beautiful balcony – perfect for sitting and relaxing while contemplating the beauty of the surroundings. This is the ideal place for rest and tranquility.
