Visiting the Haría garden

The centre of the town of Haría is home to one of the most important gardens on Lanzarote – a plot that David Riebold has dedicated to the native plant life of the island. It’s a fascinating, inspiring place that we had the immense pleasure of visiting recently.

Visiting Lanzarote’s airport museum

Lanzarote’s Museo Aeronáutico (Airport Museum) is passed by thousands of cars daily, but only a few end up exploring this fascinating place. That’s a shame, because it’s a little gem – we took a tour of the museum recently.

Visiting Haría

Haría is quiet, charming and full of character – a place where the timeless rhythms of daily life still seem to prevail.
