Once in the pedestrian zone, you can stroll through the streets and enjoy the beautiful historic architecture. But the little town will be full.
If you reach the first intersection (Avenida el Puente), you should walk the road a bit uphill. Here is the small market of Santa Cruz de La Palma. In addition to fresh fruit, vegetables, fish and meat, you can also try a sugar cane juice.
If you continue along the beach promenade (Avenida Marítima), you will come to the famous colourful balconies of Santa Cruz de La Palma.
