A little culture…

The first inhabitants of the island, the Benahoaritas arrived from North Africa around the year 1000 BC. At the end of the 15th century, the Spaniards landed at Tazacorte and colonized the Archipelago, which was officially ransacked to the crown of Castile in 1493.

It is also the time of the attacks of pirates and corsairs among which the French François Le Clercq, known as "pata de Palo" (leg of wood) which burned and sacked Santa Cruz de La Palma in 1553.

La Palma has 86,000 inhabitants, 10% of whom are foreigners. Its main source of income is agriculture, which is based in particular on banana cultivation, whose plantations now occupy 3000 hectares. Some 140,000 tonnes of bananas are exported each year.

Goat farming, the tobacco industry, the production of wine, citrus fruits and other tropical fruits also contribute to the economy of the island, which is beginning to turn to sectors such as tourism. Leaving aside the circuits of mass tourism, La Palma is committed to a sustainable approach based on respect for nature.

About 270000 people (40% foreigners and 60% Spanish) visit it every year.
