Central Lanzarote

Central Lanzarote is predominantly rural, and covers the wine growing region, as well as Timanfaya National Park, and a number of villages with whitewashed houses.

La Geria is the main wine growing region of Lanzarote, and the black hillsides are covered with “zocos”, which are small dugouts, each containing a vine… and protected by a low stone wall. This enables moisture to get to the vines overnight, whilst also allowing them protection from the Lanzarote wind and sun.

Uga is a small town between Macher and Yaiza, and has a sprinking of houses. There are only a couple of places to eat, but on Saturdays there is a Farmer’s market.

San Bartolome is a residential town, linked by a main road to Arrecife. The road between the two plays host to the Hospital, a number of warehouse stores, and car spares shops. San Bartolome also includes an area called Mozaga, producing its own wines.

Montana Blanca, not to be confused with Mancha Blanca, is another predminantly residential area. It has one of my favourite places to eat, “Mi Garaje”, which serves up the best goat stew I’ve had since moving here –  a large bowlful for only €4.50

Guime is another residential village, popular with expats. At one end of the village, the properties have phenomenal views over the airport and Puerto del Carmen.

Yaiza is the capital of the municipality of the same name. It has often been voted the prettiest village in Spain. There are a number of places to eat – but Yaiza is mostly known for its stunning nativity display at Christmas (called a Belen)
