La Galga

A farming hamlet and laurel forest
In the north-east of La Palma, the landscape is dominated by intense green hills, farmland and lush ravines. Nestled between the steep mountainsides you’ll find the hamlet of La Galga, a well-known farming community that, thanks to its cultivated terraces, has maintained the vigorous, time-consuming work on the land to collect the fruits of a place of unforgettable beauty. Close by, there is a magnificent laurel forest, Cubo de La Galga, which simply has to be seen.
La Palma’s traditional architecture
La Galga’s location, set between hills and ravines, has seen the population divided into disperse groups. In the centre of the small, well-maintained village you will find the church of the patron saint, St Bartolomé. This is a small chapel, built in La Palma’s traditional architectural style: tiles, whitewashed stone walls and wooden balconies, a style reflected throughout many houses in the hamlet. When hunger strikes, you’ll discover superb grilled meats here.

Sustainability
Sostenibilidad
- Never leave waste of any type lying around, including cigarette butts. Leftover food leads to a proliferation of rats and wild cats, which pose a serious threat to the fauna.
- Do not throw any waste or other objects into the sea.
- Respect the animals. Do not bother them or feed them. If you see an injured specimen, you can call the emergency number: 112. Do not pick flowers or plants.
- Do not pick up or take away stones or any other item from the natural environment. And do not move them to pile them up into sadly famous 'towers'.
- Respect and look after the area's historic and cultural heritage, along with the different items of public furniture (information panels, railings, seats, lighting, etc.).
