Lajares, Corralejo

3.8
#2 of 8 in Historic Sites in Fuerteventura
Known for its locally made lace, Lajares is just a ten-minute drive from the tourist city of north Corralejo. Bus tours often make a quick stop at the lace shop called Artisania Lajares on their way to other parts of the island. However, many expatriates have moved into town, giving the small community a worldly feel. The village first put itself on the map because locals traveled there to grind and roast their grain. The windmills where surrounding communities took their harvest still stand in the fields next to the village center. Make Lajares part of your personalized Corralejo itinerary using our Corralejo itinerary builder.

    Bring some food for the chipmunks! They are tame and will climb in your backpack, if you're not careful.  more »

    The Land is very bare, however if you are an explorer like we are, get a hire car and its a must to visit.  more »
