Maciot is a small hamlet in the municipality of Yaiza, on the island of Lanzarote.
It is around 170m above sea level and has just 50 inhabitants.
This place owes its name to the Norman conqueror Maciot de Bethencourt. This settlement dates back to the 15th Century and the House of Lugarteniente de Jean de Bethencourt and is now known as the Casa Rural de los Ajaches, which still holds its historic value thanks to its traditional stone and clay architecture and flat roof.
The most standout feature of this spot is a red mountain which was used as a quarry to provide gravel to Canary Island gardens.
