If you’ve hired a car for the duration of your holiday we’d recommend you visit the canals of Los Tilos. Similar to the ‘levadas’ of Madeira, they run for miles along roads, across the countryside and often through tunnels, whilst irrigating the crops on the way.
Many people choose to walk the length of them through the beautiful terrain. Many of the crops they irrigate are vines which produce the little known but still delicious La Palma wine. Another speciality is the Malvasia fortified wine of the island which is referred to by Shakespeare.
