Most villages on La Palma have an annual fiesta in honour of their patron saint. (They’ve all got patron saints) Most weeks in summer see a fiesta somewhere or other, and this weekend it’ll be Puntallana, in honour of St John the Baptist.

On Saturday there’s a livestock fair from 10 am to 5:50 pm, the usual farmer’s market from 10 am to 2 pm, bouncy castles and other kids’ activities from 11 am plus various porting events: a hike, dominoes, baseball, dog trials at 4 pm and at 7:30 pm there’s a horse race, along the LP102 from Martin Luis to El Tejal.

On Sunday, there’s paint ball at 10 am, more bouncy castles and,I think, a water-fight at 11 am, and folk music starting at 6 pm.

On Monday and Tuesday, kids’ football. On Wednesday they’ve got rhythmic gymnastics and more football.

While you’re in the village, it’s worth seeing the particularly nice church , the springs, and the museum at Casa Lujan.
