Tías, Lanzarote

In Spanish Tias means aunts. The town was given the name by the former governor of Gran Canaria, Don Alfonso Fajardo, who named the place to honour his aunts. Formerly called The Tias of Fajardo after Doña Francisca and Doña Hernán Fajardo.

Tias has around 5,500 residents, is today the main town of the Municipio de Tias and the authorities and the police headquarters are based here. Many long term or permanent holidaymakers have made the town their new home. But more and more short stay holidaymakers are enjoying their holidays in the many available apartments and fincas, away from the hustle and bustle. There are plenty of beautiful little shops and some typical Spanish tapas bars and restaurants. You can visit the two churches “Nuestra Señora de la Candelaria” and “San Antonio”.  If you are in Tias on a Saturday morning, then is visiting the market, where local produce and products from the island are offered, is a must. Exhibitions take place in the small church of La Ermita on a regular basis.

When you are on holidays on Lanzarote and you are hungry in Tías you should not miss to visit the tapas bar “La Ermita“.
