Pharmacy Information For Lanzarote

One of the things that will strike visitors to Lanzarote is that there appear to be so many pharmacies here, known as farmacias, and identified by the flashing green cross sign.

Farmacia

The reason is that they are an integral part of the health service here. The staff are highly trained and they should be the first port of call for most non-emergency medical treatments. 

It’s also worth noting that even basic drugs such as pain killers cannot be bought in supermarkets or other shops here, so your nearest Farmacia is the place to go for anything like that.

If you are given a prescription by a doctor here, the farmacia is where you go to have your medicine dispensed.  read more »

How Will Brexit Affect Lanzarote?

Britain has decided to leave the European Union this morning. It was a close result, and interestingly people under 50 voted to remain, but the older people of Britain carried the vote.

The British Prime Minister has announced he will resign, so someone else will be navigating the exit deal, which will take up to two years to become final.

So how will all this affect Lanzarote, and our regular visitors and residents from Britain?

The further you look ahead, the more hazy it becomes, but here are my best guesses.  read more »

When Concorde Came To Lanzarote

It was on 18th November 1999 when G-BOAC, a British Airways Concorde, landed at Arrecife airport. She was bringing in passengers who were due to embark on a luxury cruise setting out from the island.

Word went out, and the airport surroundings were filled with people to watch the aircraft as she landed and taxied to the gate. Work stopped on all the other aircraft on the apron as workers paused to see the supersonic jet.   read more »
