La Palma town is one of the most visited municipalities in the department of
Chalatenango. It is a picturesque town that has a cool climate and beautiful landscapes. It
is characterized by the painted town walls that mimic the crafts that are made in this
place. The beautiful traditional crafts in the area are carved in wood and painted with
very striking colors, in addition, finely embroidered fabrics are also carefully made. In
1984, La Palma town served as the stage for the first attempts to conduct peace talks
between the guerrillas and the El Salvadoran government. For this reason, it is sometimes
known as "the cradle of peace", and a town park was created to memorialize this.
La Palma town today represents unity and the cheerful spirit of the producers who grow
coffee on the slopes and mountains of the Ilamatepec – Metapan range, located in the
northeast of the country where the Las Palmas blend grows. This coffee is made up of
varieties such as Pacas, Bourbon, and Catuai and has notes of cocoa nibs, candied
hazelnuts, caramel with a balanced body.
