Transatlantic 2022 — La Palma; Random views near Castillo de la Virgen and back into town


Los Balcones

After Castillo de la Virgen, Ursula and I continued uphill a bit further to explore more high vantage points of Santa Cruz de La Palma:

Near the top of our climb we came across a small park, across from which was this charming church — Parroquia de Nuestra Señora de la Encarnación (Parish of Our Lady of the Incarnation):

As we headed back down Carretera la Encarnacíon and back into town, we ran across several nice gardens:

Reds with a Purple Backdrop

We were now making our way back to Vision of the Seas, but in a slow and meandering manner that would give us more to see and photograph:

Elevated windows and doors to nowhere

Back onto Calle Anselmo Pérez de Brito as we explored an area we previously missed:

We left Calle Pérez de Brito before it changed back to Calle O’Daly and headed over to a street that paralleled to the west. Once on Calle Virgen de la Luz we continued southwest until reaching Plaza Santo Domingo:

Back down to Calle O’Daly via some narrow, steep, and winding steps, where we passed this young fellow outside a travel bookstore as we headed back to the ship. His name is Felix Francisco Casanova:
