The beginning of the village of Tijarafe was a small chapel built around 1530. In 1567, the church Parroquía de Nuestra Señora de Candelaria was built in its place, and the community grew up around it. Photos: Claudia Knupfer, Ayuntamiento de Tijarafe

Playa de la Veta beach can only be reached on foot or by boat. The beach is located below the cliff in the northwest of the island. The soft sand in the bay is pleasantly soft, but the current in the water is quite strong and the seabed quickly drops deep. Photos: Alex Díaz, Ayuntamiento de Tijarafe

When there were no roads on La Palma, Pirate Bay was a port from which all kinds of goods were shipped. It is a large, open cave in the cliff of Tijarafe. People have built small houses here where they spend the weekends or the whole summer. Photos: Kike Navarro, Ayuntamiento de Tijarafe
