When we started to take care of the Las Piteras complex, just under a year ago, at first we didn't pay many attention to it. It just looked like an old an overgrown banana tree. Just our diligent collaborator Eva drew my attention to the fact that it is a very unusual plant, a so called white bird of paradise, a Strelitzia Augusta, also known as Strelitzia Alba. In fact,... read more...

(translated to English from elmundo.es/economia/2017/05/25/...) (...) Even more striking is the case of Charco del Palo (Lanzarote), in the media it was reported from this small village to be officially declared as the first naturist village in the world, where you go completely nude shopping, bring the garbage out or also to go bare to have dinner. Alexander Ott, «jefe de reservas» from Las Piteras -naturist complex in Charco del Palo- where he... read more...

Two days ago I found some photos taken in Las Piteras in the early 90's. As I remember it was an amazing place, the walls of the nowadays called Casa del Sol where decorated with paintings, the garden was decorated by three large, red stones in the form of human backings :) and in the rear building, which now houses the Casa del Sol Garden Apartments, there was even a... read more...

mein Gott ist das lange her - ja das war eine herrliche Zeit auf Lanzarote - malen - die "tres culos rochos" aus Sand und Zement fromen - und das alles nackt. Ich habe auch vor gar nicht langer Zeit ein paar Fotos aus der Zeit gefunden. Herzlichen Gruß nach Lanzarote - Almut

Haria is located in the north of the island of Lanzarote, idyllically embedded in the "Valley of the 1,000 palm trees", and surrounded by the Risco de Famara mountains. The story tells, every time a child was born, a new palm tree had been planted, so the accumulation of this type of palms can be explained, known also by the name Phoenix Canariensis.

Eastertime is coming, and afterwards it will be a bit quieter here by us in Charco del Palo, after a really great season. Even with us, the weather is now becoming warmer again (was it cold at all this year?), the days are getting longer, hot summer nights are ahead of us, full moons over the Atlantic, just like now. It is exactly this spring season that I most love... read more...

Hi, my name is Alexander, I live since 1997 in Lanzarote.

By profession I am architect, and I like this job very much. Since 2004 I am also the operator of the website charcodelpalo.com.

Perhaps you will find from time to time something new on this website which may interest you. Anyway, I will try to present some interesting topics around Lanzarote and holidays.
