Santa Cruz de la Palma is known as a former colonial city for its historic city centre with many attractive buildings. The old town has been declared an art-historical monument and the extensive tourist offers attract many guests every year. With a rental car, for example, visitors can visit the town hall. The Renaissance building dates from the middle of the 16th century and has a beautiful wooden covered ceiling and several frescoes. As usual for the port city, part of the façade is whitewashed in a radiant white.
Another highlight are the many churches spread all over the city. The 14th century pilgrimage church of the Virgen de las Nieves is worth a visit. It has a magnificent silver high altar added in the 17th century. Since the church is located in a higher area on the outskirts of the city, visitors can reach the site conveniently by rental car. The numerous offers allow everyone to rent the right car.
On special occasions it is also worthwhile to book a rental car: Every five years the pilgrimage church is the scene of the popular festival "Descent of the Virgin from the Snow" (Bajada de la Virgen de las Nieves), during which parades, concerts and dance performances take place. If you want to rent a car, you should also visit the churches Iglesia Matriz de El Salvador, Iglesia de San Francisco and Iglesia de San Francisco. The Museum der Seefahrt is also a special excursion site. Here the famous ship Santa Maria was rebuilt, with which Christopher Columbus discovered America in 1492.
We continue by rental car to the Castillo de Santa Catalina fortress, built in the 17th century. It testifies to a time when Santa Cruz de la Palma was repeatedly attacked by pirates and the inhabitants had to protect themselves. The historical castle has massive stone walls.
Inside the complex there are regular medieval markets and during the pre-Christmas period there is a Christmas market, the Mercadillo de Navidad. The cityscape of Santa Cruz de la Palma is also characterized by many palaces, which can be found along the pedestrian zone Calle O'Daly, for example. Visitors can park their rental car and stroll down the street. A stroll along the Avenida Maritima and through the side streets is also worthwhile: here are numerous historic town houses with their world-famous wooden balconies. They are artfully decorated and often lavishly decorated with flowers. Some balconies even extend over two floors. This well-preserved, historical architecture is what makes the island capital so attractive. With the rental car, visitors can get to know the different facets of Santa Cruz de la Palma best.
