The Parador on La Palma is just outside the village of San Jose, in Breña Baja. (Paradors are a national chain of posh hotels, and very nice they are too.) Tonight (April 22nd ) at 8 pm they’ll be hosting the first public dinner with a new menu, inspired by astronomical bodies. A professional Starlight guide will be there to talk about the planets, and afterwards, there will be stargazing.

I haven’t tried these dishes myself, but people who have tell me they taste heavenly.

Cost: 40€ per person. Reservations are essential, since numbers will be limited. For more information and bookings, phone 922 43 58 28 or email lapalma@parador.es

Sheila came to La Palma with a six month contract and has stayed 24 years so far. She used to work as a software engineer at the observatory, but now she's a writer and Starlight guide.

  1. Hola Sheila. Tuve la suerte de asistir a una visita al observatorio del Roque de Los Muchachos, siendo tu nuestra guia.
    Me gustó tu exposición y amenidad, Siento no haber entrado en internet cuando estaba en La Palma para comprar tu libro alli.
    Lo intentaré desde Madrid.
    Gracias
    Mauricio del Castillo
