Administratively, Mozaga is a very peculiar town because its surface is divided between the municipality of Teguise and St. Bartholomew.
Munich is a village even smaller than the previous ones but with the same magic and tranquility. The few buildings facing Soo and the Risco de Famara and highlights the small church which is located in the middle of town, next to the road.
Tiagua does not have too many buildings, is very well kept and the locals are very friendly and hospitable.
The lava flow from the eruptions of 1730 and 1736, which runs around the town of Tahiche, is absolutely spectacular.
