Embark on an easy 6-kilometer trail along the northeast of La Palma. Tour a beautifully restored windmill, once used to make “gofio”, which is toasted cornmeal and one of the most typical foods of the Canary Islands. Next, walk to the Buracas Caves, where you’ll find pre-historic petroglyphs carved by the first inhabitants of the island.
Continue the route crossing fields of almond trees and green valleys speckled with dragon trees. Contemplate these magnificent giant looking cactuses in the Barranco de Izcagua and enjoy the views of the Atlantic coast.
