Sightseeing in La Palma - what to see. Complete travel guide

La Palma is a small island on north-west part of the Canary Islands archipelago. The total square of the island estimates 728 square kilometers. La Palma is an exceptionally beautiful island, which shape reminds of a pear. La Palma is the best choice for those people who like peaceful rest. The coastline of the island is mostly rocky, so the number of islands is not big, but the beaches are no less attractive than other beaches of the archipelago.
There are many mountains on the island. The highest point of the island is Roque de los Muchachos peak, which height estimates 2387 meters. The northern part of the island is the location of cherry laurel forests that grow 500-1500 meters above the sea level. These are the only remaining forests of laurel cherry that once covered all southern part of Europe. Los Tilos and Cubbo de la Galga ravines are the official biosphere nature reserves and keepers of the unique forests. In these forests you will find pathways, on which tourists can walk.
Tourists should also visit the capital of the island – Santa Crus de la Palma that traditionally attracts visitors by its ancient buildings and narrow streets. In this city you can visit a small triangle Spain Square that is famous for its stone fountain. Near the square is located Church of Savior with a bell tower and Town Hall. Among the attractions of the capital are Castillo de Santa Catalina and Marine Museum made in the shape of the Columbus’s ship «Santa Maria». The ship is made in its natural size.

Sightseeing in Spain: things to see

The Royal Palace remains the main landmark of Madrid. Nowadays, the palace is used to host most important meetings and official ceremonies. An ancient Moorish castle stood on the site of the modern Royal Palace until 1755. In the middle of the 18th century the castle lost its strategic importance, and as it was built in a very beautiful place it was decided to demolish it and build a luxury palace instead. Currently, this magnificent building has more than 2,000 rooms halls that hold precious collections of old items - chandeliers, clocks, furniture, musical instruments, weapons and artworks. … Open
