Chinijo Archipelago

La Graciosa

One of the islands of the Chinijo Archipelago in the Canary Islands.

The Chinijo Archipelago is situated in the North East of the Canaries and North of Lanzarote. It consists of the islands of La Graciosa, which is the largest of them, Alegranza, Montana Clara, Roque del Oeste and Roque del Este.

The only populated island is La Graciosa, where 700 people live. It is a mile wide and you can walk around the island in a day. It belongs to the municipality of Teguise and forms part of the nature reserve Parque Natural del Archipelago Chinijo, which also includes Los Riscos de Famara, the rocky coastline in the North of Lanzarote.

Part of the attraction of the island is that there are no hotels and no roads, just sand or dirt tracks. This makes it ideal for hiking. You can also hire mountain bikes at the harbour or book safari island trips. There are plenty of long golden sandy beaches which are unspoilt and deserted. Playa de las Conchas is the most impressive of these on the North West coast, from where you have views of the other islands in the archipelago. The other islands can be reached by fishing boats but it is not allowed to land on them, because they form part of the Natural Park and are home to some endangered species. It is also home to rabbits and partridges who thrive on the islands.

Guests staying in comfort on Lanzarote can take day trips to Las Graciosa by taking a ferry from Orzola harbour. The ferries depart 3-4 times per day and the journey is around 30 minutes long. The ferry docks at Caleta de Sebo, which is where Jean de Bethencourt, the conquerer of Lanzarote, would have landed in the early 1400s. Most of the inhabitants live in Caleta de Sebo, which has a post office, bank, 2 supermarkets, cafes and restaurants. The rest of the inhabitants live further along the coast in Casas de Pedro Barba.

History of Lanzarote

Juan de Bethencourt

Norman knight who broke his lance on arriving on the island, declaring “Lanza rota” – meaning broken lance.

Lanzarote may have been named after a Genoese sailor called Lancelotto, who landed on the island in 1312. Or some say that it was down to the Norman knight Jean de Bethencourt who broke his lance on arriving on the island and declared “Lanza rota”, meaning broken lance. Alternatively, it could be due to the French nobleman, Lancelot, who came tot he island on one of Bethencourt’s expeditions.

The most important expedition in the history of Lanzarote was ordered by King Alfonso IV of Portugal. The sailors on this expedition counted 13 islands in the Canaries. There were 7 major islands: Tenerife, Lanzarote, Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria, La Gomera, El Hierro and La Palma. Then they also counted 6 minor islands: Alegranza, Montana Clara, La Graciosa, Roque del Oeste, Roque de Este and Lobos. The sailors were greeted by the local Guanches graciously, but sadly in the years to follow there were many private raids.
