Municipality of Puntagorda
Located in the north west of La Palma between Garafia and Tijarafe, Puntagorda is an area of farm land, pine forests and vineyards, the wine being the award-winning Traviesa. Puntagorda is also famous for its many orchards of almond trees, the pink blossom of which is a fantastic sight during January and February. This has given rise to the Almond Festival each year.
