Tour description

The Real Villa de San Miguel de Teguise is an essential place to visit if you come to Lanzarote.
In this tour I will show you the main corners of the Villa de Teguise, the old capital of the island.
"La Villa" (as we Lanzarote people call it) was declared an Asset of Cultural Interest in the category of historical complex in 1981 and has just been incorporated into the network of "most beautiful villages in Spain", a benchmark of prestige and quality at national and international (it is based on the French model of "les plus beaux villages de France"), which already has 104 locations throughout Spain.
Teguise is one of the oldest and best preserved cities in the entire Canary Islands , founded at the dawn of the conquest and colonization of the Canary Islands, an authentic historical document. In addition, it constitutes an excellent sample of typically Canarian popular, military and religious architectural typologies , highlighting the famous "Byzantine" chimneys of Lanzarote and stately mansions. Prepare the camera!
In the Villa, in addition, original Canarian traditions are preserved , that synthesis of European, Berber, Magrevian and Latin American cultures that characterize and give color to our unique town.
It is recommended to bring a jacket! In the Villa the northeast trade wind hits directly from the sea and makes considerable "scratch" in the afternoons.
For the rest, I promise to make you have a good time and as always in my tours, I will give you recommendations for other places to see, how to complete the visit and I will gladly answer all your questions.

Damián es un guía muy ameno, que transmite muy bien su saber y profesionalidad. Ha sido una pena no poder hacer el freetour de Arrecife con él, por ser mi pareja y yo los únicos inscritos en él y no ser un número sugiciente.

Teguise ha sido declarado uno de los pueblos más bonitos de España, eso se hace evidente con la homogeneidad de su entorno y el contraste de sus casas blancas sobre la tierra negra. Pero esto también puede dar lugar a que te puedas perder los detalles que la hacen tan especial. Con Damián hemos podido recorrer el pueblo fijándonos en estas características y sabiendo más sobre la historia y cultura de Lanzarote.

Damián fue un guía fantástico que hizo del tour un rato muy ameno. Sus comentarios fueron siempre muy interesantes y el tono simpático y agradable. Ojalá todos los guías a lo largo del mundo fuesen como el.

Damián es un guía muy amable y profesional. Nos ha entretenido durante toda la visita y se nos ha hecho muy corto el recorrido. Nos ha encantado.
