About Santa Cruz de La Palma
Santa Cruz de La Palma is the capital of the Canary Island of La Palma, and is home to around 18,000 inhabitants. The city was founded in 1493 and today is a busy and popular tourist destination. Santa Cruz de la Palma, with its characteristic steeply inclined valleys, has a lively ambience. Behind the city of Santa Cruz de la Palma, there is a mighty volcanic crater.
Santa Cruz de La Palma is a lively city with a classic charm, and has many buildings of cultural and historical importance, such as the El Salvador church and the City Hall. The main city square, the Plaza de España, is home to many fine examples of Renaissance architecture and the stunning Iglesia del Salvador (church of the saviour).
There is plenty to see and do in Santa Cruz de La Palma, from visiting the Naval Museum and the 17th century Santa Catalina fort, to walking around the Barranco de las Nieves ravine. If you visit in early August you may be lucky enough to catch the famous Fiesta de Nuestra Señora de las Nieves, the feast day of Our Lady of the Snows.
La Palma benefits from a warm and sunny climate, and comprises beautiful beaches and stunning scenery, from mountainous terrain to fertile valleys.
Tenerife is the largest and the most happening island of the Canaries.
The sun, the Mediterranean climate, lovely sandy beaches and of course the incredible volcanic landscape makes Tenerife a popular destination for holiday makers. You can simply sun bathe on the sandy beaches or explore the island.
You are never short of things to do in those incredible surroundings with many local pubs, restaurants and discos; vibrant culture and architecture and various water sports.
Tenerife is popular with tourists with resorts built around stunning beaches perfect for sunbathing. But if you want to get away from all that and experience real Canarian culture then a visit to the capital, Santa Cruz de Tenerife is highly recommended. In February the annual carnival takes place, which is second only to Rio in terms of classic fiesta spirit.
