Squeeze in some sightseeing while you shop by heading inland to the
Teguise Market. It’s located in the center of Lanzarote and in a sweet village called La Villa de Teguise. The whitewashed, emblematically Canarian pueblo used to be Lanzarote’s capital and the heart of island life, and these days is considered one of the best-preserved towns in the archipelago.
Every Sunday, it’s also the center for island market shopping, with loads of stalls cropping up to sell everything from bargain wares to more treasured
goods, including crafts and artisanal food. Apart from shopping, you can get a dose of culture here as well by checking out the market’s traditional song and dance. Or, if you’re keen to escape the crowds, consider visiting other town sights such as the 15th-century Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe Church, and Santa Barbara Castle, which now houses a Pirate Museum.
To avoid any parking hassle, you may wish to arrive here by bus: Organized tours are available (which also may visit other stops such as the Cesar Manrique Foundation, which is just 10 minutes away), as well as the intercity bus 11, which, note, has limited hours and only runs on Sundays.
