The most charming town in the north of La Palma

To get to San Andrés, in the north-east of La Palma you have to cross the biggest single-arch bridge in Spain. Once crossed you arrive at one of the most charming towns in La Palma, which was the regional capital for centuries, a fact reflected in the centuries-old mansions of the rich commercial traders. The façades of the houses surrounding the Renaissance-style church Nuestra Señora de Montserrat, bear decorated reliefs and balconies facing the Atlantic Ocean.

Cobbled streets and paths down to the coast

With a view of the sea ever-present, the cobbled streets of San Andrés remain exactly how they were centuries ago, and the town’s houses, with their large windows, are a constant source of admiration. The town centre revolves around the church and a delightful plaza of the same name, something almost unique in the island. The nearby Plaza de la Alameda is the perfect resting point for the senses and if you fancy a stroll to the coast you can take the sea path down to the Charco Azul and enjoy a well-deserved dip in the ocean.
