Santuario de la Virgen de las Nieves

Take a 45-minute hike up to the Santuario de la Virgen de las Nieves for a bird’s-eye view of Santa Cruz. This unassuming 17th-century house of worship is the centerpiece of La Palma’s Bajada—a celebration that takes place every five years, during which the statue of the Virgin Mary is carried down into the city. After touring the church, enjoy a café con leche y leche (coffee with milk and condensed milk) at the only nearby restaurant while you soak in the scenery.
