Every year La Palma holds a craft fair, and usually there’s an amazing variety of crafts on display and sale: embroideries, cigars, ceramics, woodcarving, paining on glass, bags made out of goatskins, leatherwork, hand-made paper, etc. Last year’s fair was held in Los Cancajos. This year it will be in Tijarafe football ground from today (Wednesday 13th) until Sunday 17th. It’s open from 11 am until 9 pm.

 

It’s a great opportunity to get souvenirs and presents actually made on La Palma, instead of a plastic banana which says “A present from the Canaries” on the front and “Made in China” on the back.
