The Island Council of La Palma, under the Department of Public Works, has undertaken a comprehensive series of improvement projects in the San Juanito area of Puntallana. These endeavours serve a dual purpose: to establish a designated stopping point along the route and to rejuvenate the San Juanito viewpoint.
Darwin Rodríguez, the councillor responsible for the area, emphasized the significance of these efforts. He stated, “We are revitalizing this previously neglected area, which holds great value not only as a point of interest for tourists and a reference point when travelling down this road to Santa Cruz de La Palma but also as a rest area for public services and tourists using our road network.”
The restoration initiatives encompass several key elements. Firstly, the area has been replenished with indigenous flora, generously supplied by the Vivero Insular. Secondly, the deteriorated walls have been meticulously repaired, preserving their historical character. Additionally, a fountain has been installed in the area to enhance its appeal and functionality. Lastly, the monument dedicated to San Juanito has undergone a restoration process, further enriching the overall aesthetic and cultural significance of the site.
