Santa Cruz de La Palma
Capital of the Palmeros
The capital Santa Cruz de la Palma is still treasuring the glamour and opulence of the past, when the town became rich through the trilateral trade between Africa, the Old and the New World. Even though today Santa Cruz doesn’t count more than 20.000 inhabitants, the town feels like a real mtropolis: Watch people promenading up and down the Calle O’Daly, having a cortado in the “Café La Palma” while reading the latest news and talking to the neighbours about business. And in the evenings go to the Avenida Marítima or to the “Placeta”, with fine restaurants with international cuisine.
Since 2004 I mediate holiday homes, apartments and rental car bookings on the smallest & western Canary islands La Gomera, El Hierro and La Palma. The first years I was living in Vallehermoso (La Gomera) with my family. For some time the office is situated in Germany, and I travel to the most beautiful islands in the sea several times a year.
I know all accommodations, all house owners personally, take the photos myself and regularly check the quality of the houses on site. My program is small and fine: I only offer holiday homes in which I feel comfortable and which I can really recommend. So to get to know the islands far from the tourist paths, you’ve come to the right place at GOMERA individual: it’s Canarias auténticas.
