Definitions for "Lanzarote"
Lanzarote, a Spanish island, is the easternmost of the Canary Islands, in the Atlantic Ocean ca. 125 kilometers off the coast of Africa and 1,000 km from the Iberian Peninsula. The first recorded name for the island, given by Angelino Dulcert, was Insula de Lanzarotus Marocelus, after the Genoese navigator Lancelotto Malocello, from which the modern name is derived. The island's name in the native Guanche language was Tite-Roy-Gatra, which may mean "the red mountains".
