Villages of Lanzarote

Villages of Lanzarote

Lanzarote has some wonderful villages situated outside of the main resorts.  One of the consequences of the work done by Cesar Manrique and follow-up local regulations is that many villages have maintained a traditional style of construction with white as the predominant color.

Villages depicted in this post from north to south are:

  • Órzola, the most northern village in Lanzarote and a peaceful fishing settlement famed for its fantastic fish and seafood restaurants
  • , inland just under the Corona volcano
  • Haria, the beautiful green oasis fondly known as the Valley of a Thousand Palms. This is due to a tradition of planting palm trees to mark the birth of a child,
  • Yaiza and Uga, at the southern end of La Geria
  • and finally Playa Blanca, more a town than a village actually, at the southern tip of the island, facing Fuerteventura.
