Have been to Teguise on numerous occasions for the market but never visited the pirate museum. Plenty of historical information about the Canarias. The views would be fantastic on a clear day. Only three euros to get in so it doesn’t break the bank. When...More

On one of those days when when a car is very useful. I'm not sure if this features in any hotel excursions due to it's location up a very narrow road with extremely limited parking. We wouldn't want to walk up but if you've got...More
