There is a new service in Lanzarote that will come in handy, if you are ever in need of a pharmacy after normal business hours.
The website www.farmacias-lanzarote.es is updated daily based on the information provided by the "Colegio Oficial de Farmacéuticos de Las Palmas", listing all the chemists on duty or "farmacia de guardia" in Spanish.
You can see the full list of on duty pharmacies in Lanzarote for that day on the home page, or you can search by "Municipio": Arrecife, Haría, Teguise, Tías, Tinajo, San Bartolomé & Yaiza. The top red box that is shown at top top of the page is the out of hours pharmacy for that day followed by a list of the other pharmacies in that “municipio". This is the page for the municipality of Tías for today:
Although at the moment the website is only available in Spanish, it's quite self-explanatory, mentioning the date, pharmacy name & address:
Miércoles 19 de enero de 2011: Dña. Elena Gómez de las Heras situado en C/ Roque Nublo 9, Puerto del Carmen.
So you can find out where to go directly with just one click for that much needed help!
