Tahíche

Located under a volcano of the same name, Tahiche has a very varied cultural, social, gastronomic and sports offer. In addition, its proximity to Arrecife, the capital of the island, means that it has very good transport connections and is well supplied at all times.

Where is Tahiche?

Tahiche is a village in the municipality of Teguise, in the central north of Lanzarote. This small but pretty village is surrounded by volcanic landscapes and is noted for its unique farming fields. It is also home to the island’s university.

Around Tahiche you can also see spectacular lava flows which are from an eruption in 1730.

The Fundación César Manrique studies, conserves, and displays the great artist’s works while also promoting art, culture, and environmental protection through different projects, exhibitions, and publications.

Due to its natural form and changing colour throughout the year, it is also worth seeing the volcanic crater named after César Manrique. The top floor of the building is a clear example of the island’s traditional architecture but with modern touches such as huge windows and large open rooms.
