Set in a fertile valley in the centre of Lanzarote, the beautiful country town of San Bartolomé is the agricultural centre of the island, with easy access to the region's famous resorts, beaches and landmarks. Its many attractions are not that visible from the central main road passing through, but if you scratch the surface a little, it soon reveals its many hidden treasures that are best explored by foot.
This stunning palm-lined village celebrates the style of famous local artist and architect César Manrique, with its stark blend of white, black and green, minimalist buildings and impressive sculpture of Manrique himself. The stylish square boasts some fine examples of traditional Canarian architecture, such as Perdomo House, an 18th century building home to the Tanit Ethnographic museum, showcasing the Island’s unique folk culture.
Travel back in time with historical remnants spanning the last two hundred years. In the heart of town find the late 18th Century parish church of San Bartolomé with its beautiful courtyard and garden. Learn about Bartolomé’s agricultural history at Monumento al Campesino, otherwise known as 'Monument to the Farmer'. Along with the Tanit Museum, it celebrates the region’s rich farming background. San Bartolomé’s coastal strip is shorter than neighbouring districts, but this hasn’t prevented it from developing residential zones around Playa Honda's fine sand beach with plenty of amenities suitable for a family holiday.
But if it's not just sunshine and pretty beaches you're after, keep your family entertained at the Gran Karting Club, the best go-karting club Lanzarote has to offer! Catering to all ages and abilities, there are two circuits to choose from. Challenge friends or family to see who can get the best lap. While waiting your turn, re energise at the fully stocked bar, watch TV, hit the game rooms, or enjoy the stunning panoramic ocean view overlooking both tracks.
