Lajares, Corralejo

3.8
#3 of 10 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.

  • We, Fons and Daniëlla, were here last weekend during a (handicraft) market and have enjoyed! It is a casual atmosphere with lots of friendly people.

  • A small village where there is nothing to see. For example, Corralejo El Cotilloon. Good roads.

  • Nice little picturesque village inland which reminded me of Mexican haciendas. Worth a visit ! There is a nice cycling route from El Cotillo to Lajares.  more »
