Fajana of Barlovento gets its name from its origin. In fact, it is a perfect example of a lava delta or lava fajana. Discover here what a lava delta is.

The first adaptation works of the primitive ponds began in 1976, creating ideal saltwater pools for swimming and recreation. The natural beauty of the pools and their preservation have been appreciated by tourists and locals, and have become a popular tourist spot on the island.

La Fajana Pools, located on the coastline of La Palma island, were formerly a place for linen tanning. Over time, these pools have been conditioned to form a group of three natural pools that have managed to preserve their natural environment.
