There is the 16th-century Church of the Saviour, where a child will see some unique examples of five hundred years old carvings. Visit Spain Square and take a walk around the City Hall, which stones remember many historical events. Every boy will like the Castle of Santa Catalina, which for many years protected the city from the pirates. Any child can feel himself here as a brave Spanish soldier or a daring pirate. Little sea admirers will definitely be interested in the copy of Columbus’ “Santa Maria” ship, inside of which there is a real sea museum.
Visit Puerto de Naos beach, which black volcanic sand every child will like. For the little ones there are jet ski, trampolines, water slides, and many other water activities in La Palma. Older kids can try snorkeling or diving, or visit a yacht club and take part in sports fishing competition, organized by the capital club La Gaviota. If your child likes to draw or if he is a fan of any subculture, take him to Los Llanos, where you can see many examples of large-scale street art.
