Life on the island until the arrival of the Spanish is shrouded in mystery, but the first Spaniards on the island found it inhabited by a people who called themselves the Bimbache. These unfortunates were mainly sold into slavery after putting up what resistance they could to the Spanish. The island achieved some measure of fame, thanks to being the starting point for the second voyage made by Christopher Columbus to the American continent in 1493. It was also the location of a prison to which the fascist General Franco sent many of his political opponents after the Spanish Civil War.

As with all of the Canary Isles, the main focus now of the island is tourism. The coastline of the island is rocky and the waters surrounding it very clear, making it a great venue for scuba diving and snorkelling. The black volcanic sand found on some beaches is particularly striking. The pine forests on the upper slopes of the island feature some attractive walking trails, and there are plenty of great places for visitors to El Hierro holiday apartments to sit and enjoy the maritime views. The cuisine of the island, as might be expected, features much seafood, with a range of stews and soups found on the menu in most places. The Canarian toasted cereal flour known as gofio also plays a part in many local dishes, especially breakfast dishes and desserts. The local varieties of cheese are used in the distinctive quesadillas which are found on the island, while the island's wine is also pleasant. The main meat which visitors to El Hierro holiday rentals will find on their menus is rabbit, and goat also features heavily in local dishes.
