Very small information centre, but told you lots about the Gaunches and their lifestyle. A short walk takes you to see the rock carvings which I found interesting. Well worth a visit if you're interested in the history of the island.

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...More
