Places to discover in Lanzarote
Real Villa de Teguise is the full name of the city of Teguise, the largest city in Lanzarote. It was the capital of the island and for that reason it was very important. Now it proudly presents its wonderful artistic, cultural and architectural heritage that it got when it was the capital.
Its old district has been declared as an historical-artistic and architectonic set, for that reason it is worthwhile to discover it.
Walking around the old town
Walking trough the streets very calmly is a way to live the essence of a place. This is what happens visiting the old quarter: a pleasure for the senses.
Its cobblestone streets and perfectly preserved white facades invite you to get lost in the village. Tourists fall in love with Teguise above all for its stately homes such as Casa Perdomo, Casa Consistorial, Casa Museo Marqués de Herrera y Rojas or Casa Spínola.
A special word goes to the Timple House Museum. It is a multifunctional building used as a study centre, a cultural space and a museum. Here you can see a wide range of timples, a musical instrument typical of the Canary Island.
Santa Bárbara Castle
This castle is the oldest military manufacture on Lanzarote that has been there over time. Sancho de Herrera wanted it built in the 16th century in a strategic defensive position.
When this place lost its function, it became an abandoned manufacture until the 1960s. Since then, there were many conservation works that helped it to stay there standing. Without a doubt, another place to see in teguise.
