Tours & Activities in Lanzarote
Visit the capital of Lanzarote on a light-hearted tour filled with the kind of anecdotes that only a local guide knows.
It is about having a good time understanding how we live around here, introducing them to the history of Lanzarote and its most genuine traditions and helping them find their way around.
The tour lasts approximately two hours and in addition to what I tell you can take the opportunity to ask me all the questions you want. I love that people participate and ask.
We will go through some of the most significant places in Arrecife:
- Castle of San Gabriel and Puente de las Bolas;
- Ramírez Cerdá Park and the House of Culture;
- Monument to Blas Cabrera Felipe and former National Parador;
- Yellow House (former Island Council);
- The store;
- Monument to Heraclio Niz the "Arrecife Chicken";
- Church of San Ginés and La Puntilla neighborhood;
- San Ginés Puddle
And I will also tell you the best places to eat well and cheaply, have a drink at night or go shopping.
In the end, I think it's a good plan.
The Real Villa de San Miguel de Teguise is an essential place to visit if you come to Lanzarote.
In this tour I will show you the main corners of the Villa de Teguise, the old capital of the island.
"La Villa" (as we Lanzarote people call it) was declared an Asset of Cultural Interest in the category of historical complex in 1981 and has just been incorporated into the network of "most beautiful villages in Spain", a benchmark of prestige and quality at national and international (it is based on the French model of "les plus beaux villages de France"), which already has 104 locations throughout Spain.
Teguise is one of the oldest and best preserved cities in the entire Canary Islands , founded at the dawn of the conquest and colonization of the Canary Islands, an authentic historical document. In addition, it constitutes an excellent sample of typically Canarian popular, military and religious architectural typologies , highlighting the famous "Byzantine" chimneys of Lanzarote and stately mansions. Prepare the camera!
In the Villa, in addition, original Canarian traditions are preserved , that synthesis of European, Berber, Magrevian and Latin American cultures that characterize and give color to our unique town.
It is recommended to bring a jacket! In the Villa the northeast trade wind hits directly from the sea and makes considerable "scratch" in the afternoons.
For the rest, I promise to make you have a good time and as always in my tours, I will give you recommendations for other places to see, how to complete the visit and I will gladly answer all your questions.
