The address of the ayuntamuento in La Oliva is C/ Emilio Castellot, 2 La Oliva. Other municiple information is available on the municipal information page. The ayuntamiento is based in a modern building and we have always found the staff to be helpful and friendly.

The parish church of La Oliva,is dedicated to the Virgen de la Candelaria, has three naves and a tower of black stone.

Another building of note in the town is La Casa de los Coroneles. The building was restored and opened by the King and Queen of Spain in 2006, and is well worth a visit, and it is located just down from the ayuntamiento. It was built in 1708 and was the home of the military rulers of the island. The building usually has a mix of exhibitions on display, which change at different times of the year. It´s open from Tuesday - Sunday from 10am - 2pm and 4.30pm - 7pm. Entrance is free.

There are two other museums in the town, Museo Casa del Grano "la Cilla", which is open 10.00 - 17.00 (closed Mondays) and the Centro de Arte Canario, Casa Mane, which is also open from 10.00 - 17.00 (closed Sundays)
