Teguise: The former capital

Teguise, the former capital, carries the name of the last guanche-king's daughter.

It is one of the oldest settlements on the archipelago, but little is left of its original monumental abundance, as it once was destroyed by pirates.

Anyhow, Teguise conserved much of its ambience of a manorial town, with nice houses Photo and its dominating castle, Castillo de Santa Barbara.

A highly demanded souvenir are the "Timples", traditional instruments similar to guitars, which are manufactured here.
