Gaze at the stars on the island of La Palma
La Palma is one of the best places in the world for star gazing. Which is why even children will have a great time as they learn about astronomy. The best spot for looking at the sky is at the Roque de los Muchachos Observatory, which offers guided tours all year round for groups, booked in advance at the website www.iac.es . The island also has a number of companies that organise astronomy and star-gazing workshops for children.
But La Palma offers many more learning experiences for the younger members of the population. For example, at the Jardín de las Aves bird garden they'll be able to see birds from all five continents in free flight, or visit Maroparque to see exotic animals such as kangaroos and crocodiles, as well as several endangered species. Meanwhile, a visit to the Caldera de Taburiente National Park will enable them to learn about volcanoes as, like everyone else, they enjoy a day outdoors at this spectacular beauty spot.
