Short driving route around La Palma

La Palma is an attractive tourist destination where you can connect with nature under one of the best skies in the world, relax on one of its charming beaches, go on an excursion to volcanoes and ravines or take tours of cultural interest around its municipalities, in addition to enjoying its delicious gastronomy. Starting out from Santa Cruz de La Palma, in the east of the island, you can drive to some of the points of interest near the city.

 

From the port to Las Nieves

The Shrine to the Virgen de las Nieves (Virgin of the Snows), built in 1646 and located in the upper area of Santa Cruz de La Palma, is one of the most popular in the city and one of the island's places of interest for tourists. About three kilometres from the centre of Santa Cruz de La Palma, it is quick to get to it by car or, if you prefer, you can also get here easily on foot by taking the pretty path that leads to it.

 

La Concepción Viewing Point and Los Cancajos

Located in the municipality of Breña Alta, in the east of La Palma, La Concepción Viewing Point affords spectacular views over Santa Cruz de La Palma, which you can enjoy on the way to Los Cancajos, also in the east of the island of La Palma – a fishing neighbourhood that has adapted to tourism but maintains its quiet atmosphere. Two attractive and popular destinations that you can't miss in La Palma.
