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.

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.
