San Andrés

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.

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.).
