Situated in a valley on the west side of the island to the bijou capital and port Santa Cruz de La Palma, Los Llanos is slightly more populous—as in around 20,000 inhabitants rather than roughly 15,000. This is the western frontier of the Canary Islands that the bucket and spade brigade didn't invade.
You can learn about the original inhabitants of the island at the Museo Arqueologico Benahoarita. These were Berber-descending cave dwellers whose existence was largely wiped out by the Spanish colonizers although there is still much local reverence for their traditions. Nearby Cafe Marex makes for an ideal remote work spot, as does Cowork Café en La Palma in Plaza Constitución.
