Purchase arts and crafts among banana plantations and historic houses in Los Llanos
Most Canarian markets offer variety and quality, but there are few that are located right next to banana plantations of the finest bananas in the world and surrounded by a rich architectural heritage. This superb combination is found in Los Llanos de Argual in La Palma, a place that has become a meeting point for both visitors and locals who not only want to buy handicrafts and local products, but also enjoy a pleasant Sunday and, perhaps, even discover how glass blowing is done.
Arts and crafts in the west of La Palma with a glass blowing workshop
A glass blowing workshop reveals the techniques behind this beautiful art form, examples of which are displayed in some of the many stalls in Plaza Sotomayor along with an eclectic mix of handicrafts and natural products from the countryside and the sea. The chapel of San Pedro and the stately homes of the 17th and 18th Centuries, some of which house art exhibitions and are open to the public, make this enclave of Los Llanos even more attractive, and much more than a simple shopping destination.
