The trip to La Graciosa

,
The trip to La Graciosa is a great day out for families and solo travellers looking for a quiet break that’s just a 25 minute boat trip away. Here’s how to get there:

Teguise Landmarks

,
As Lanzarote’s ancient capital and first ever town, it’s not surprising you’ll find more heritage here than anywhere else. Teguise’s sleepy, whitewashed streets hide a turbulent history of grandeur and poverty.

The town of Teguise

,
Locals still call Teguise “La Villa”. The pretty white town on the hill may have stopped being the capital of Lanzarote in 1847, but it has never stopped being “The Town”

The campaign for 180 days

Lanzarote property-owner Brian Knibb writes about the struggle of “swallows” to get a fair deal following a Brexit agreement that has limited the rights of every British citizen.

,
Erardo Ferrer of Lanzarote Abogados tells us about two real case histories that show that it still makes sense to review any mortgage taken out between 2000 and 2018. Names have been changed to preserve client confidentiality.

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 last month.
