Mozaga

Mozaga

In terms of its administration, Mozaga is a very unusual place, since it straddles the border between the two municipalities of Teguise and San Bartolomé.

Mozaga forms part of La Geria, a very important area for the cultivation of the vines used to make wine with the Lanzarote appellation of origin, one of the island’s prized culinary treasures. The landscape of La Geria is totally atypical and very impressive. The malpaís (badlands) have been transformed into fertile wine country thanks to the ingenuity of Lanzarote’s farmers, who dig deep holes into the earth, cover them with picón or rofe (volcanic charcoal) and then plant their grapevines, protecting them from the strong winds with semi-circular stone walls.

In Mozaga, wineries, traditional houses, and rural tourism are plentiful, along with many enchanting little corners, such as the church of Nuestra Señora de la Peña.
