Learn about Bethancourt's conquest and other island events during a film screening in the traditional Canarian house, Casa Santa Maria. |
Continue to the picturesque town of Pajara, famous for its pretty Aztec-style church. Travel south and take in the miles of untouched beach stretching before you. Relax over a lunch of Canarian soup, meat, fruit and wine, before heading back north to Lajares. Here you'll dsicover how grain was traditionally ground on the island and how lace and embroidery continue to be made to this day.
