So beautiful and colourful. You dont need much time here but you can appreciate the uniqueness and elegance. We noticed some street art on some of the buildings and one or two looked not so well maintained. Such as shame.

A very Spanish city with only a few tacky tourist shops . Otherwise very Spanish. A very pleasant walk to look at the fabulous historic balconies and bespoke shops. Worth a visit!

There's not a lot to do in Santa Cruz de La Palma so you'll probably find yourself wandering along this street at some point. The architecture is quite interesting particularly, as you'd expect, the balconies. They were presumably used by merchants of old to look...More

It must surely be great to occupy one of these houses and have stunning views out to seaward at all times of the day from sunrise to sunset. They all looked very well maintained with numerous potted plants growing on some
