The enchanting village in the valley of the thousand palm trees
Haría, in the north of Lanzarote, is situated in the charming “valley of the thousand palm trees”, one of the best groves of native palm trees in the Canary Islands. As the road winds between the mountains, there appears below an oasis in the middle of the island’s natural geology – green fields and crops dotted by the white of the traditional white architecture. In the shade of the mysterious Corona Volcano sleeps Haría, lulled by the tranquility of a very unique countryside.
