Santa Cruz de La Palma Guide

The Spanish city of Santa Cruz de la Palma is located on the east coast of the island of La Palma, one of the Canary Islands. It is the island's second largest city, after Los Llanos de Aridane, but it is the island's capital. The city was founded by 1493 by Alonso Fernandez de Lugo and was located next to a river that was situated by a cave named Tedote (now Cueva de Carla) to the north of the city. The city's original name was called Villa del Apuron and its port connected routes to the Americas, from which goods from the island were exported. The city is characterised by its cobbled streets, timber balconies and ancient buildings and is just a short stroll from the holiday resort of Los Cancajos. For passengers disembarking at the city's port, the town centre is just across the road from the harbour's entrance.

Santa Cruz de la Palma has the only major port in the island, serving ferry routes to Cádiz in Spain, as well as to Tenerife, Gran Canaria and Lanzarote. The main ferry operators in the port are Naviera Armas and Fred Olsen Express. Many cruise line firms also operate from the port.


Cadiz Guide

The city and port of Cadiz is located in the Andalusia region of southern Spain. The city's coastline forms part of the Costa de la Luz (the Coast of Light) and has many popular sandy beaches some of which are in an urban environment and some of more remote and therefore, unspoilt. There are three festivals held in the city which are popular with tourists. There is the Carnival of Cadiz, the horse racing events on the beach at Sanlucar de Barrameda and the Horse Fair in Jerez de la Frontera. The city is also well known for its delicious food and specifically for its "pescaito frito" (fried platters of assorted fish) and for its shellfish which are best accompanied by wines from the region.

The city's old town is characterised by narrow streets and is one of the most densely populated areas in Europe and has a number of squares that are popular with tourists. These are Plaza de Espana, Plaza de San Juan de Dios, Plaza de Candelaria and Plaza de Mina.

The port at Cadiz serves fishing, sailing, commercial, and passenger traffic and also includes ship repair facilities. From the ferry port passengers can catch a ferry to Arrecife, Las Palmas and Santa Cruz de Tenerife.
