Nothing sounds better than going to a little island in the Canary Islands such as La Palma. La Palma only has 85,000 inhabitants and is the third smallest island out of the seven that make up the Canary Islands. It is a volcanic island in the Atlantic Ocean which was claimed by Spain but now governs itself along with its sister islands. The claim to fame for La Palma (or better know as La Isla de La Palma) is that it is the steepest Island in the world.
La Palma has always been a very significant island as it served as a launch and service areas for ships on their way to America during the period of colonisation. It became very rich from trading and this is seen throughout the culture of its port city. The island’s principal port is called Santa Cruz de La Palma. Here you will see the preserved culture, from growing tobacco and selling premium cigars to the elegant 17th and 18th century architecture of the houses that were built here.
