If you take a trip to the national park of Timanfaya from the north of the island you will pass by one of the prettiest villages on the island. A peaceful place with beautiful colorful gardens lining the roads which lead to a square in the center next to the 18th century church of Nuestro Señora de los Remedios. Usually open you can pop in and take a look at the beautiful carvings and paintings. This is a sacred site and the church was built on the site of a chapel which dates back to 1699. During the festive season the village is famous for its large nativity scene which dominates the square with representations of different areas of the island.
There are a number of restaurants, but one of the more interesting is off the beaten track and called La Era. It is an old Canarian house and you enter into the main open terrace with room leading off from here. Each room is decorated in its own traditional style and the food is also Canarian and traditional, so it is not unusual to find rabbit or goat on the menu.
There are some local pottery shops in the village which are worth a browse and the back drop is a colorful view of the volcanoes
