Banana Museum

Yes, you'll go bananas here

La Palma is home to a surprising number of fairly niche museums, and this is another prime example. In the southern town of Tazacorte's historic neighbourhood of El Charco, the Museo del Plátano is Europe's only museum dedicated exclusively to bananas and commercial banana production - which along with tourism remains enormously important to the economy of this island. And in fact, these two storeys do go into exhaustive detail with panel after panel about the internationally recognised Canary Island banana and its cultivation. Soon another section is expected to open including a small kitchen which will demonstrate how to make local Canarian products such as mistela grape dessert wine and banana liqueur.
