The basics

A walking tour through the historic center of Teguise provides a glimpse into Lanzarote’s past. Admire the whitewashed buildings and palm-studded plazas as you stroll through the village, peek inside the 15th-century Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe (Iglesia de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe), and take in the views from Santa Barbara Castle (Castillo de Santa Bárbara).

Many Lanzarote tours include a stop in Teguise, often in combination with nearby sites such as the César Manrique Foundation, the Cactus Garden (Jardín de Cactus), and Cucharas Beach. The village is also famous for its weekly flea market, which takes place on Sunday mornings.

When to get there

Most travelers time their visit to Teguise to browse the weekly flea market, held each Sunday from 9am until 2pm year-round. The market is a popular spot for both locals and tourists, so the small town can get crowded, especially during the peak tourist season (July and August). If you can, get there when the market opens to dodge the crowds and take in the stalls before the tour buses arrive.
