San Andrés and Sauces is one of the main population centres in the northeastern part of the island of La Palma. Its territory houses part of Los Tilos nature area, declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO.
Situated in the northeastern section of La Palma, between the ravines of Herradura and La Galga, San Andrés 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 Andrés (16th century). Inside, it contains images of Cristo del Gran Poder and Nuestra Señora 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 Andrés 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.
