Tías Old Town

Between the Atlantic and the White Mountain

Tías is a small coastal village in Lanzarote which attracts many tourists throughout the year with its charm and location. The white houses perched on the hillside really catch your eye as soon as you arrive. All of this is dominated by the volcanic Montaña Blanca and the Atlantic Ocean, forming a combination that is very typical of the Canary Islands. In terms of architecture, the church of Nuestra Señora de La Candelaria, declared a Place of Cultural Interest in 1999, was built in the 18th century to replace the previous church, which was buried by lava.

José Saramago House-Museum

One of the most interesting activities in Tías is to visit the José Saramago House-Museum. The Portuguese writer, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1998, spent the last 18 years of his life in Tías, the village that stole his heart. Today, the doors of the house, which he says is “made of books”, are open to anyone who wants to drink in his essence.

Sostenibilidad
- Never leave waste of any type lying around, including cigarette butts. Leftover food leads to a proliferation of rats and wild cats, which pose a serious threat to the fauna.
- Do not throw any waste or other objects into the sea.
- Respect the animals. Do not bother them or feed them. If you see an injured specimen, you can call the emergency number: 112. Do not pick flowers or plants.
- Do not pick up or take away stones or any other item from the natural environment. And do not move them to pile them up into sadly famous 'towers'.
- Respect and look after the area's historic and cultural heritage, along with the different items of public furniture (information panels, railings, seats, lighting, etc.).
