San Bartolome lies right in the middle of Lanzarote - a traditional Canarian town, with attractive narrow streets and pretty white washed houses. A central focal point is the 18th century Church of San Bartolome situated in the central square. The town hall and municipal theatre is here too. In fact San Bartolome is a strong administrative centre in Lanzarote. Before tourism took off, the main economic activity here was agriculture. Just to the north of the town lie the famous wine fields of La Geria. Here black volcanic rubble and stone semi-circles are still used as to release and retain overnight moisture and to protect young vines.
