Lajares

A short drive from the coast at Corralejo, you’ll arrive at the pretty village of Lajares. Here, you’ll find a small selection of bars, restaurants and a supermarket. Two windmills next to the church were originally used to produce gofio, the special Canaries flour made from a blend of wheat, barley and maize, for the locals. The main attraction for visitors is the lace shop, Artisania Lajares, where you can watch locals make lace and embroidery. The town also boasts a lucha canaria area, specially designed to hold wrestling matches unique to the Canaries.
