Lanzarote Sightseeing


A party is not a one-off affair on Lanzarote. Arrecife's Fiestas de San Ginés are a case in point. Lasting from the 15th to 25th August, they centre on the capital's El Charco which pays tribute to Arrecife's patron saint, the one time Bishop of Clermont.

Pay respects to Saint Seb in Teguise's El Mojón on the 20th January. The Fiesta de San Sebastían is the first of the island's patron saint celebrations.

Key Areas

Whilst Tenerife is widely considered to be the best of the Canary Islands for wine, Lanzarote's La Geria is well worth a visit. The bodegas here including El Grifo and La Geria give tours and tastings. Marvel at the vines growing out of volcanic soil.

The weekend of 17 and 18 June marks the island's 9th Lanzarote Wine Run. Compete in or watch a race through the volcanic vineyards of La Geria, then enjoy the gastronomic festival. lanzarotewinerun.com

The recently opened Starlight Openair Cinema in Puerto del Carmen is Lanzarote's first outdoor film theatre where you can see the big stars of the screen underneath the sky's actual stars.

Day Trips

Decidedly more old school than main town Arrecife, original capital Teguise is well worth a day trip, especially on a Sunday when its Plaza de San Miguel hosts an arts and crafts market. Architecture is of the Golden Age of Spain variety as Teguise was founded not long after the Castilian conquest of the 15th century. teguise.es
