Pozo de las Calcosas

Typical El Hierro architecture

If you would like an original experience, just go to Pozo de las Calcosas in the north of the island of El Hierro. A village formed by so-called “straw huts” and renowned for its volcanic stone walls and thatched roofs made of “colmo” or rye straw. This place is of great interest as it shows the architectural legacy of El Hierro: an open-air museum.

A village where you can enjoy the sea

The residents of El Mocanal usually spend their summers at nearby Pozo de las Calcosas because it has a series of natural pools and is very peaceful. It is worth taking a trip down the steep road to discovering the peculiar, well-maintained hamlet and have a stroll through its alleyways.
