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 the visitor centre going first up in direction Zarza and Zarzita and then down, in direction Caldera del Agua and San Antonio. When you go down from the visitor centre you walk inside a laurel forest that drive you far away from everything, inside there is not posible see nothing but trees and heard nothing but Nature.

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 in this place time forgot, the smell of cooking as big pots of soup simmer of a fire of logs or the gently smoking goat meat.
And yet, it is unlikely you will meet another soul.
In short, it is a fabulous experience.

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 the surrounding forests around the visiting center. You will find the best walks south side of the visiting center. The hiking trails leads you to a fantastic shady canyon in which you can walk for like a whole day if you wish to do so. The deeper you enter it, the more beautiful it becomes. This canyon is filled with bay leef trees and other jungle-like plants.

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 the carvings, artifacts and some history of the island explained in Spanish and English. The trail is a tree-shaded path with several locations of ancient rock carvings

Free parking lot to the grounds and also one can park here to access other hiking trails here to the north. It’s a nice tour when combined with other locations in the northern section of the island. This tour is not recommended for the physically challenged due to the rough walking surfaces.

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 treat of seeing that beautiful Rock Art (age ~500 BC) during your journey on this relatively easy walk, which can be accomplished by elderly people with not too much effort.
I like rainforests and I like Rock Art. (I saw Aboriginal Rock Art in Kakadu Autstralia), but this is definitely one of my favorite places that I have visited so far, and a 'must see' when you are on La Palma.

The museum presentation is a little tired and out of date in it's style compared to other's on the island. However, the short walk up to the sites themselves more than makes up for it. Fascinating rock carvings than no one has been able to decipher so far.

Lovely place to go on a hot day as its a shady, rain-foresty place where you can see rock carvings by the original inhabitants of la Palma. Quiet and peaceful it has an ancient feel to it. The information centre had more info on the Guanches who lived there . Entry fee is a paltry £2. There isn't much money spent on the park as it's "au natural" but a lovely place to stroll and watch all the many lizards running around the low stone walls. We enjoyed it very much.

Easily located off the lp1 road although it's a long drive from anywhere, at least 90 mins from Santa Cruz
The road is windy and with the stunning views you have to keep stopping
When you arrive there is a small cat park and museum along with many walking trails
