Trip to Teguise and the Castillo de Santa Barbara. Hotels, beaches, promenade in the tourist resort of Costa Teguise. Town in a large part was designed by Cesar Manriqe - low, typical Canarian buildings perfectly integrated into the natural landscape. I chose the hotel in Costa Teguise because it is the perfect starting point for exploring the island.
Teguise - a city in the middle of the island - The capital of Lanzarote until 1852 due to its strategic location.
