Chapel vandalised

One of the oldest and best-known chapels on La Gomera, the Ermita de Los Santos Reyes in the parish of Valle Gran Rey near El Guro/Casa de la Seda suffered an act of vandalism when some of its stained-glass windows were found to have been damaged on Thursday morning. The small 500 years old church is beautifully but remotely situated on the less-inhabited eastern side of the valley and can only be reached via a steep path. It appears that small stones were thrown from the outside to damage the windows and some letters had also been scratched into the door. Police are investigating this rare and very strange incident.
