The municipality of El Paso is situated in the centre of the island of La Palma. It is the island's largest municipality and the only one that is not on the coast. The town of El Paso is surrounded by almond trees and other fruit trees. There are many archaeological sites nearby and the countryside around it is extremely beautiful. Some of the places that are worth visiting are La Cumbrecita viewpoint, El Pilar refuge, Los Llanos del Jable, San Juan lava flows, Bejenado Peak and Caldera de Taburiente National Park. Here you can also admire one of the island's most beautiful and amazing phenomena: clouds cascading down Cumbre Nueva as they move from east to west. El Paso is also important because one of La Palma's oldest and best-preserved crafts – silk production – originated here, and the town even has a Silk Museum. In June the municipality displays beautiful carpets made out of natural products (seeds, petals, small fruits, herbs, twigs, stones, etc.) to celebrate the feast of El Sagrado Corazón de Jesús.
