Sit back, relax and enjoy the breathtaking scenery as you journey through La Palma’s mountains to the charming town of El Paso. Be hypnotised by the 500-year-old traditional method of weaving in the local Silk Museum, the only place in Europe where the original process has been preserved.
Experience the beautifully restored 17th century sugar estate, Hotel Hacienda de Abajo. Surrounded by verdant botanical gardens, the manor buildings display a varied collection of fine arts, furniture and porcelain. With your guide, you’ll explore a selection of the public rooms and enjoy tea and pastries while soaking up the incredible views out to the Atlantic Ocean.
Finally visit nearby La Glorieta Square to photograph the colourful mosaics by local artist Luis Morera, which are surrounded by lush gardens.
