Municipality of El Paso
Located in the centre of La Palma on the west side of the mountain ridge which forms the southern spine of the island, El Paso ranges from a busy little town to the most stunning natural elements of the island.
At its heart is the Caldera de Taburiente which a massive erosion crater formed thousands of years ago from a volcano and now with a diameter of 9km and a height of 2426m, the highest point of the island. If you don't get time to go to the top of the island or walk inside the crater, La Cumbrecita with its amazing view serves almost as well!
The town itself is a bustling affair which almost every shop you can think of. And if that's not enough, there's the largest city on the island of Los Llanos 7km away.
If the beach is your thing, El Puerto de Tazacorte and Puerto de Naos are both a great choice at 20/25 minutes away. And from almost everywhere in El Paso you have wonderful views at every turn.
