The Cementerio Viejo de La Villa was the first Catholic cemetery to be built in Lanzarote and dates back to 1814. It is open to the public every day from 09:00 to 17:00. Mayor Oswaldo Betancort commented at the opening ceremony “Today we have recovered a piece of the island’s history and our heritage with the idea of sharing it with everyone who visits us”.
