This is the island's capital and centre of administration. At its centre stands a wonderfully simple fortified church built in the 18th century. In former times the roof was equipped with cannons and the inhabitants took cover from looting pirates within the thick walls.

Opposite the church are the town hall and the main post office. The church square is the central meeting point of San Francisco and in the morning local craftsmen sell their goods here giving it a wonderful atmosphere. The quaint square lined with cafes and the pedestrianised street's shops and bars gives a lively bustle to this little town.
