  •   -La Palma Island / INFO / WEBCAMS

    La Palma INFO& and WEBCAMS 
     
      In the northwest part of the archipelago of the Canary Islands the island of La Palma is situated, also known as “La Isla Bonita” or “La Isla Verde” (the beautiful island or the green island) for its exuberant forests and extraordinary natural beauties.

       It has a surface of 706 square kilometers and a population of approx. 85000 inhabitants, with 14 municipalities.

       On this island there are considerable elevations for such a short perimeter. Its maximum elevation is the “Roque de los Muchachos” with 2426 meters, whereby the entire central mountain range exceeds 2000 meters. The distance from Tenerife is 85 kilometers and from mainland Spain (Cadiz) 1440 kilometers.

       As the rest of the Canaries and further archipelagos, which form Macaronesia, are all islands of volcanic origen; they distinguish themselves from each other by the green of the vegetation of their mountains and the abundance of water, La Palma being the unique Canary island which has brooks and creeks.
     
       La Palma is a haven of peace and a paradise for the senses. Known as the 'Isla Bonita' (Pretty Island) because of its spectacular natural landscapes, the colour and harmony of its villages and colonial cities alike; it is a unique location where your breath will be taken away by its natural beauty which strikes you at every stage as you explore the most exotic spots.

       The birthplace of beautiful legends, La Palma is the perfect location to get away from it all in its leafy laurel woodlands, the largest of the Canary Islands, with refreshing fresh water springs, such as those of Marcos and Corderos; and along ravines which, like the Barranco del Agua, enlighten you with new and different sounds and fragrances.

       On the island of La Palma, delcared a Biosphere Reserve in 2002, you can find volcanic cones, idyllic little bays and magical spots such as the woodland of `El Canal y Los Tiles´. Take a trip along the network of footpaths either on foot, by bike or on horseback and have a different and unforgettable experience. Delight your eyes with the spectacular views offered at the Caldera de Taburiente, a breathtaking sight that you can only see from the heights of the beautiful crests surrounding it, which are as often as not, above the clouds.

       On this island, you can also visit theme parks, such as the Garden of the Birds or the Maroparque, where you will enjoy learning all about the world’s flora and fauna.

        But La Palma, is also the `island of the stars´, due to the extraordinary clarity of the sky there. At Roque los Muchachos, surrounded by a unique setting of truly breathtaking beauty at an altitude of over 2,420 metres above sea level, you can get to know one of the world’s most important astrophysical observatories, where scientists from all over the world study the heavens.

        La Palma awaits to offer you a unique holiday, with enchanting rural accommodation, traditional craftwork full of curiosities and its delicious cuisine.

        The National Park of La Caldera de Taburiente

        By decree in accordance with the laws 2615/Aug. 9, 1954, 4/April 25, 1981 and 4/March 27, 1989 La Caldera de Taburiente was re-classified as national park and integrated into the state network of national  parks.

        As per definition the park is an area of ecological sensibility to its full extension, according to the law 11/July 13, 1990. Furthermore, it was declared by the directive 79/404/CEE as a zone of special protection for forest birds. Likewise, within the park there is a sector of the mountain reserved for public use (No. 27, Ferrer, Ladera y Monclás). It borders in the east with the natural park of Las Nieves and in the southeast with the landscape protected by the ravine of Las Angustias. Inside this area the natural monument of Idafe is situated.

        The National Park of La Caldera de Taburiente displays an excellent, modern and well-equipped visitors center, where one also will get the permissions for camping. It operates as an information office, where one can buy maps, guides and pamphlets. You will also find a room for exhibitions and audiovision, a videothek and a library.
     
        Inside the Caldera there are no roads for vehicles; one has to walk everywhere on foot. If you want to get to know its interior, it will be advisable to camp overnight in the reserved zone of the Taburiente.
