Teguise was one of the first urban centres to develop in the Canary Islands. What to see The old town stands out with its cobbled streets and unique surrounding landscape of extinct craters and plains of dark volcanic soil. Some of the town’s main buildings in the centre are the Spínola Palace or the convents of Santo Domingo and San Francisco. Nature and César Manrique Two of Lanzarote-born architect César Manrique’s creations are preserved in the Teguise: the Cactus Garden, which was his last creation and houses around 1,400 different cactus species, and the foundation that bears his name, which was also the artist’s former home. The César Manrique Foundation is an original museum where you can see an interesting collection of contemporary art as well as the surrounding landscape of five large natural volcanic bubbles. Beaches Costa Teguise is one of the island’s main tourist destinations thanks to its wide selection of hotels, estates, shops and restaurants. Las Cucharas beach is a highlight, known for its perfect windsurfing conditions. Gastronomy Try the island’s specialities: ‘ranchos’ (a typical pork stew) and the famous ‘papas arrugás’ (potatoes boiled in salt) accompanied by different ‘mojos’ (sauces).
