Nice rock engravings

Nice place to visit ancient rock engravings of early inhabitants. Also the walk through the forrest is like a fairytale landscape. Note that they are closed on Mondays.

On a hot (30 centigrade) summer day, a short 40 minute walk by the shaded paths of La Zarza, through a La Gomera like rain forest with many birds flying over for 2eur pp is a genuine relax. Otherwise, with less demanding weather La Palma offers plenty other even more interesting trails Free Of charge. however, if it makes a... More

Lush and green on the canarian islands, who would have thought. I have visited Tenerife and Gran Canaria, but never thought I would encounter such a place on these islands. La palma has a lot to offer. There are similar places on the Island like this rainforest, but not as beautiful as this one. And then there is also the... More

Located along the winding road of the northern coast, this 1.5km shaded trail is a peaceful tour along a covered creek bed. Your 2€ entry fee includes access to museum, souvenir shop, video room, snack shop, tour of the trails and rock carvings and access to the restrooms. The museum area is basically one room of displays and information on... More

In La Zarza you will find some old rock drawings in a fairy tale forest. There is also a visiting center whit a little museum. The museum is not that special. You can visit it in 10 minutes. A tourist path guides you to the rock drawings. The best way to enjoy this place is to take a walk in... More

You pay a small entrance fee to visit the fenced park, which is rather small . We found the best outside the park walking the path to San Pedro and back. Tip start with the difficult part (steps, climbs ...) down the park place, you will welcome a rather comfortable way back after a 3 hours walk.

La Zarza is a magical experience - it feels like you are in a setting for Lord of the Rings, with caves, little wooden bridges, paths springy from pine needles and vines trailing down from above. And all surrounded by silence except for the occasional bird or twig snapping underfoot. It is easy to imagine the sounds of children playing... More

The best of La Zarza is not what you find inside de Visitor Centre, it´s just everything that you find in this great environment. In this ravine, people can enjoy one of the most beautiful walks on La palma. Along the way is posible to see rocks with inscriptions from the aborigin people of the island. The walk begin by...
