This is very popular tourist spot especially with the cruise visitors. They are really beautifully preserved but L Palma is very good at looking after heritage sites and local architecture. If you slip down th alley at the side it takes you into a small...More

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

Unique architecture, the wooden balconies of the old buildings, many of them with plaques telling you of their importance. Lovely stroll.

Canarian architecture is very proud of its patios and balconies. Unfortunately there aren't that many left to enjoy. However if you are in Santa Cruz you can't leave without admiring the few Canarian wooden Balconies and the old Canarian architecture. Luckily enough the owners of...More

At the time of our visit the hanging baskets were not bursting with colour but it was well worth a visit (unavoidable if one happens to be in the Avenida Maritima!) to see these wooden balconies and to admire the architecture and to share in...More

This area was recommended to us by our holiday rep. It is a very small avenue, and the balconies that there are, are nothing special. Some are moderately attractive, but not worth all the hype! Madeira's capital, Funchal is MUCH prettier. The balconies are rather...More

Very nice to see the flowers around the balconies , I’d imagine the flowers change with the seasons but still nice

Beautiful balconies. Next to a nice street. Ok for a short stroll. I guess the flowers change depending on season. Not much more, really

While walking around the cosy, steep, little city we past by these beautiful, old balconies. It's a little part of the street near the coastline. There is distance, but unfortunately you could see that the salt water from the sea took its toll. All in...More
