We spent a few hours walking around learning the history of this neighborhood. Formerly the Jewish quarter, now a residential and commercial area. Cobblestone streets, orange trees, narrow streets with very few cars. Really nice.

Lanzarote is in the Canaries more than a 1000 miles from Andalusia` I have never been to the Canaries Don't bother planning tours to mainland Spain in such a short time-even by private jet you would be wasting your time
