Yaiza is a town in the south of Lanzarote with just over 800 inhabitants, although the overall population of the area that falls under Yaiza is around 16,000. This municipality was the first place of arrival of the conquistadores and was the first European enclave in the Canary Islands.
This town is on the edge of an area which was engulfed by two volcanic eruptions in 1730 and 1736.
It is one of the best preserved towns in the Canary Islands, with a huge respect for its architectural traditions. In fact, it has been awarded for its beautiful streets and houses, which are decorated with a wide variety of plants and flowers.
Its charming landscape has made Yaiza one of the most visited towns in Lanzarote.
