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.


San Sebastian de la Gomera Guide

The Spanish city of San Sebastian de la Gomera is the capital city of the island of La Gomera, in the Canary Islands. Due to its historical links with the discovery of America it is also known as "Isla Colombina". The city developed around a natural bay and still visible today, and of interest with tourists, are many preserved monuments such as the Church of La Asuncion, the Pozo de la Aguada and the Torre del Conde (The Tower of the Count). Tourist facilities in the city are excellent and include a wide range of leisure facilities, especially a number of different water based sports in the port area of the city.
