And Stratvs isn’t opening, after all...

Precinto Bodega Stratvs Closed 2 2

After reporting here that the Las Palmas court overturned the forced closure of Bodega Stravs last week, the new resolution was challenged in the court, resulting in a further judgement that the bodega must remain closed. The new ruling takes into account that the original term of closure granted was five years, for the case to reach completion, and also that the conclusion of the court case concerning the legality of the build is “imminent."  read more »

Lanzarote Walk - From Sea Level To The Top Of Lanzarote

Sally and I recently decided to take on a tough walk from Mala to Haría incorporating the Presa de Mala, the dam high above the village, which Miguel wrote about here. I have driven up there many times, usually taking friends who didn’t even know it existed, but I wanted to see what was beyond the dam.

As it was to be a one-way walk we caught the bus from Arrecife to Mala getting off at the Post Office. Heading north we took the turning on the left just after the school which goes past the pretty little church, Ermita de las Mercedes, and winds round, past fields of prickly pear cactus, to the bridge over the LZ1.  read more »

Where To Take Great Photos In Lanzarote

You don’t have to be a professional photographer to create great images of Lanzarote. The unique landscape of the island just begs to be captured, from the almost velvet textured appearance of the mountains at Femés to the dramatic, rugged cliffs of Famara and the wildly varying coastline.

The Fire Mountains of the Timanfaya National Park seem to constantly change colour depending on the light at different times of day. The vegetation and wildlife that survive in this hostile and seemingly barren environment are amazing photographic subjects.

Personally, I love to go to the high points from which you can take in the fabulous vistas of Lanzarote. In the south, Atalaya de Femés is the joint highest peak on the island and, disregarding the ugly communication masts, has the best views of this end of the island. You can also see Fuerteventura and, on a very clear day, it is possible to see the peak of Mount Teide on Tenerife.  read more »
