La Palma Island

La Palma is an island in the Atlantic Ocean that belongs to Canary Islands. It has a surface of 708.32 km². It is the fifth most populated island in the Canary Archipelago.

The main and capital city is Santa Cruz de La Palma, and its second most populated town is Los Llanos de Aridane.

The island has many and varied monuments, natural and rural parks which are protected by the Government of Canary Islands. We can highlight some of them like the National Park of La Caldera de Taburiente, The Natural Park of Cumbre Vieja and The Natural Park of Las Nieves. We can also highlight the Volcanos of San Juan and Teneguia. The highest spot of the island is El Roque de los Muchachos with 2,426 metres, where several international telescopies are set up due to its height above sea level, giving rise to one of the most important Scientific Observatories of the world.

La Palma is an island with a great surface of forests, both of pines and laurels. Its main cultivations are banana and vine.

In 2002, UNESCO declared La Palma a Biosphere Reserve.

We can highlight parties like the Patron Saint of the island The Virgin of The Snows, whose celebration brings together thousands of pilgrims who go to the Descent of the Virgin that takes place every five years from the hermitage until the capital city of Santa Cruz, and vice versa.

The Carnival of La Palma is also considered as one of the most original carnivals, with the celebration of the day of Los Indianos, which is a taunt representation of those rich inhabitants of La Palma who came back from America, with white spotless suits and their servants – known as the black woman Tomasa – and this party starts with a pitched battle with talcum powders to the rhythm of the music of the Cuban Sound.
