A rural hamlet far away from urban development
In the north-west of La Palma, far removed from modern urban development and the hustle and bustle of the town, you will find the small and peaceful hamlet of Las Tricias. Perched on a hillside between ravines and surrounded by almond trees, its winter flower display is truly spectacular. The relaxed rhythm of life here allows you to take your time to enjoy the architecture; pretty detached houses with wooden balconies, walls of dark stone whitewashed and tiled roofs - genuine La Palma style.
Arts, crafts and archaeology in La Palma
The arts and crafts traditions in small hamlets are very important; because of this, traditional buildings such as an old stone flour mill have been lovingly restored – the building is now a museum, with a shop selling local handmade goods. And you can't leave Las Tricias without visiting the nearby Cuevas de Buracas (Buracas Caves). Here you’ll find rock formations of great archaeological interest and a magical dragon tree woods, an indigenous tree of the Canary Islands.
