The smallest town on El Hierro.

 Tiñor is the smallest town in all of the Canary Islands. Located in the northeast of El Hierro, its nicely maintained traditional houses, made of black volcanic rock and flat English-style roof tiles, give this village a special allure. Predominantly painted in white, they create beautiful colour contrasts with the shades of green of the surrounding vegetation. Almost concealed behind a hill a few kilometres from Herreña, Tiñor is a little treasure waiting to be discovered. Along its streets marches the renowned Bajada de la Virgen de los Reyes –Patroness of el Hierro– one of the archipelago’s main processions, instrumental in the island’s religious culture.
