Blood Alley-Callejón de la Sangre

Blood Alley-Callejón de la Sangre

Located to the northeast of the parish church, this was once a natural course for the waters that ran along the cliff of Miraflores towards the Mareta. The street owes its current name (Blood Alley) to the violent raid, in September 1569, from northern Africa, led by the pirate Calafat, when the town suffered looting, fires and kidnappings. Although in many places these scenes were impossible to prevent, on this street the invaders were forced back, chalking up a victory for the local people of Villa de Teguise.
