Tazacorte

A town full of heritage, surrounded by bananas
Tazacorte has a one-of-a-kind museum in Europe dedicated to the banana, a fruit which has been awarded a PGI (Protected Geographical Indication) status. But this north-western coastal town in La Palma is much more than simply a huge sea of bananas. The core of the town, the Charco neighbourhood, has a heritage of huge historic-artistic value, which can be seen in the stately homes dating from the 16th and 17th Centuries. A visit to this pretty town will leave a lovely taste in the mouth of even the most demanding visitor.
From the historic centre to the coastal path
Tazacorte's beaches saw the first landing by Spanish conquerors at the end of the 15th Century, and in fact the first church built on La Palma is found here, under the patronage of the Archangel Michael. Under the shaded pergola in the Plaza de España, you can let your imagination wander through these historical facts, while admiring the decorative mosaics brought over from Seville. After a short rest, take a stroll down to the sea where you can see Tazacorte’s impressive, jagged coastline.

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.).
