Lanzarote’s most beautiful churches for a wedding. Gabrielle Konali

The island of Lanzarote is famous for its unusually beautiful volcanic landscapes and crystal clear waters, which make it a magical spot, full of places to relax and get away from it all.

With a perfect, year-round temperature (averaging 22ºC in winter and 26ºC in summer), you can be sure of a perfect day for your wedding. If your heart is begging you to say, “I do!” on Lanzarote, don't hesitate! Travel to the Canary Islands and experience the wedding you have always dreamed of.

Lanzarote has marvellous places for your ceremony. This time, we would like to tell you about some of its lovely churches:

Ermita de Nuestra Señora de los Dolores

This small chapel in Tinajo is both simple and beautiful. It is also known as the Chapel of the Virgin of the Volcanos. Legend has it that in the mid-18th century, the area was devastated by a volcanic eruption. The islanders asked their Virgin to stop the lava continuing its path of destruction, and built a chapel in her honour at the exact spot where it stopped.

Iglesia de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe

In a quiet, charming setting, this church in the heart of Teguise dates to the first half of the 15th century. Its contrasting colours give it a mysterious air and the spacious plaza that surrounds gives photographers a spectacular backdrop for photographs of the newlyweds outside the church.

Iglesia de San Ginés

Alongside the San Ginés Pool in Arrecife is one of the most beautiful views in Lanzarote. Inside are the town’s patron saints, St Ginés and the Virgen del Rosario, but the church houses other treasures: stained glass windows and remnants of volcanic stone that give it a unique character.

Iglesia de Ye

The islets of northern Lanzarote are visible from this part of Haría. This church is surrounded by palm trees, and set in one of the island’s most stunning volcanic landscapes. There is a path that starts at the church leading to Malpaís de la Corona, where you will find some amazing backdrops for your wedding photos.

This is just a small selection of the many enchanting churches on the island of Lanzarote.
