Village of Yaiza

White houses and award-winning beauty

There is a village in the extreme south of Lanzarote that stands out because it is so perfectly maintained and clean. It’s no surprise that Yaiza has been awarded several prizes for being a beautiful village. Its traditional white houses mark a stark contrast against the charred black volcanic background caused by eruptions in the 18th century. This beautiful village has kept a flavour of tradition with its houses, flower-lined streets and gardens.

Monuments and calm in a typical Lanzarote village

Visitors are welcomed by the village’s typical Lanzarote architecture, with its flat, slightly slanted rooves to get the most out of the rare rainfall. There are historical monuments such as the Casa de la Cultura Benito Pérez Armas with its wooden balcony and staircases. Another interesting building is the Nuestra Señora de los Remedios church, built in the 12th century. The best way to capture the essence of Yaiza is to walk through its streets bathed in white silence.

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.).
