Ermitas in the landscape

La Gomera is literally littered with little chapels, or ermitas as they are called locally in Spanish. So where ever you are in the dramatic landscape on the island, there is always one nearby, whether hidden deep inside the laurel forest, or prominent with 360˚ panoramic vistas on top of the high ridges or in the shadow of towering cliffs deep down in the dramatic barancos.

Here are two striking little ermitas set in the dramatic landscape of Tagaluche: Ermita de San Salvador in the shadow of the towering cliffs of Galión (above) and a little Ermita and graveyard in the shadow of Lomo del Viento (below), both taken from Risco de Heredia.
