|Lanzarotian Art in Teguise|
Inland Teguise, once the capital of Lanzarote, is a picturesque small town with 17th century buildings and cobbled streets. We loved it. Interesting individual shops and galleries cluster off the tiny square, where the main church - Neustro Senora de Guadalupe is situated. In the square we visited the Palacio Spinola (also renovated by Cesar Manrique. Is there anything he didn't have a hand in?). As well as being a beautiful building, it houses the Timple Museum. The Timple is a small Canarian stringed instrument. We enjoyed the videos being shown. One of the instruments being lovingly made, and another of musicians playing wonderful music. Other beautifully crafted similar instruments from around the world are also displayed. Entry is free.
