Village of Mozaga
Mozaga is an inland small village of Lanzarote, which distributes its territory between the towns of San Bartolomé
and Teguise and whose lands are dedicated to rainfed agriculture, including notably the cultivation of vines. In addition, the name given to supplement other place names such as La Vega and Peña de Mozaga, Tajaste or Mozaga, being in the middle ground between the two places.
Mozaga was one of the places hit hard by the Timanfaya eruptions between 1730 and 1736, "lost in the sand and gravel that has thick," says Antonio Riviere (1997: 194), and covered by the "sand, lava, ashes and rubble, "says Viera (1982a: I, 788).Mozaga had 12 neighbors, as evinced by the first. But thanks to those volcanic ashes covering much of its territory, Mozaga now produces excellent wines, among the best of the island and of the archipelago.As this term is a "guanchismo" (of Guanche, the first inhabitants of Lanzarote), Mosaga writing, with s, appears in the oldest documents, the notary Salvador de Quintana, 1618 (Bello González Jiménez and Sánchez 2003: doc. 41) and the Dictionary of Madoz (1986: 148).But writing is not only the farthest Mozaga its true pronunciation, as in the aforementioned testimonies of Riviere and Viera appears as Masaga and Mosoga respectively.
The registered population of Mozaga is 380 people (1 January 2010)
