Welcome to La Casa de las Estrellas
We are an independent animal sanctuary located in the middle of the volcanic desert in the north of Lanzarote, Spain. The sanctuary is a quiet place where all kinds of rescued animals can find a safe home to stay in peace and surrounded by love.
This place has been created by owner Liala Miliardi with the help of many volunteers and supporters. Liala has been taking care for animals since she was a child. Since the start of this project in 2020, animal welfare has become her main focus in life, and she has been devoting all her time and resources to the well-being of her rescuees ever since.
La Casa de las Estrellas is an independent association, acting with no governmental support and being based on limited sources of income coming from donations, events, sales at the second hand market and over a Facebook online charity shop.

A route with goats through the volcanic desert of Pino Gordo (Costa Teguise)
It could be said that in Lanzarote, the goat goes to the volcano, not to the mountain. So what better way to get to know the rural tradition, folklore and history of this volcanic land, than on a route along the edge of the volcanoes in the desert of Costa Teguise, accompanied by four rescued and loving goats.
The walk starts at La Casa de las Estrellas. Before the route with the goats through the nearby volcanoes, you will visit the sanctuary to meet all the rescued animals and hear some of their touching stories and anecdotes. This experience is an opportunity to meet the animals in their natural environment, with the care, respect and love they deserve.
During the hour-long hike, you can enjoy spectacular views of the desert, ocean and nearby coastal towns. This trail is easy, interesting and suitable for everyone. It can also be adapted for people with reduced mobility.
