Teguise

Not to be confused with Costa Teguise, the town of Teguise was the original capital of Lanzarote, and has many centuries of colourful history.  As soon as you enter the narrow streets, and see the traditional fincas where the local residents live, as well as some beautifully restored palaces and stately homes, you get a real sense of the history of Lanzarote.

In our view, there are two different ways to enjoy Teguise:

  • Spend a weekday morning exploring the narrow streets, and fabulous buildings, then have a tapas lunch in one of several excellent restaurants (we particularly like the Palacio del Marques on C/Herrera y Rojas)
  • Come on Sunday, when Teguise Market starts from around 10 am.  It is simply huge, and packed with craft, food and clothing stalls.  The market transforms Teguise into an entirely different experience – it sometimes seems as if the entire island has turned out to browse, barter and negotiate loudly with stallholders!

In addition to the stalls and bustling array of bars and eateries, on market day you can also enjoy excellent traditional Canarian music and entertainment in and near the town square.
