National Geographic have named Haría in a list of the 100 most beautiful towns in Spain.

In a recent web article, National Geographic placed Haría at 24 in a list of the 100 most beautiful towns in Spain and highlighted the town’s natural beauty and tranquillity.

This isn’t the first time than National Geographic have highlighted Haría. In 2022, Caleta de Mero was mentioned for its impressive white sand dunes and turquoise blue water in an article about Lanzarote’s best beaches.

The text reads:

The most spectacular way to reach Haría is from the south, along the road from Teguise. The route gains altitude progressively, until it suddenly overlooks the valley of Malpaso. Before descending, chaining five horseshoe bends, you should stop at the Mirador de los Helechos to contemplate a bucolic landscape that you will never forget: the Valle de las Mil Palmeras (Valley of the Thousand Palm Trees). The largest oasis of Canary palm trees surrounds the whitewashed houses of the villages of Haría and Máguez. To the north rises La Corona (609 m), a volcano of perfect shapes, in whose 6 km tunnel-shaped cave the pirates’ population was hidden, and where today you can visit the Jameos del Agua and the Cueva de los Verdes, two great landmarks of the north of the island.

Located on the cornice of El Risco, it is a village with a rich peasant and artisan tradition, as can be seen in the market that takes place on Saturday mornings. César Manrique chose Haría to live when the fame and the increase of tourism on the island diminished its tranquility. The house where he lived until his death is now a museum. In its spacious rooms you can admire his studio-workshop, numerous works of art and above all that symbiosis between traditional architecture and talent to innovate while respecting nature.
