A potted history of Lanzarote
For a small island, it has seen some turbulence. Lanzarote was the first of the Canaries to fall to the Spanish in the 15th century and subsequently was used as the base from which to conquer the other islands. Many locals were sold into slavery or had to fend off pirates from North Africa.
Sir Walter Raleigh even joined in on the plundering act and by the mid-17th century, the population of Lanzarote was just 300. Then nature intervened when massive volcanic eruptions during the 1730s devastated the land. However the fertile lava proved perfect for farming and the island flourished. Now that same landscape attracts tourists to its shores.
