Take the chance to do some serious shopping at the biggest outdoor market in the Canaries - Teguise’s weekly market. Sitting in the island’s centre Teguise was Lanzarote’s capital until 1852 and is famed for its Sunday morning stall-fest, which draws flocks of tourists. Over 360 stands cram into its pretty plaza and cobbled streets, so you’ll be spoilt for choice. On this trip you’ll roam around under your own steam, working through the treasure box of stalls. Cue tables creaking with intricate Canarian lacework, foodstuffs, hand-made leather and all sorts of jewellery, paintings and handicrafts. And it’s all given a carnival atmosphere by Canarian dancers, hair braiders and panpipe bands. Just make sure you haggle though. And when you want a breather from browsing, Teguise is well worth a look with its pretty churches and balconied mansions. Or hit a pavement café or food stall to relax over tapas, doughnuts or a full English breakfast.
