Máguez is a small rural town very close to Haría, the municipal capital. It is a very unique place because it is surrounded by three of Lanzarote’s important volcanoes: La Corona, Los Helechos, and La Quemada. The main industry in Máguez is agriculture and the local farms producing potatoes and onions, with plenty of fruit trees all around the town.
