Cave of los Verdes

The tunnel formed by the Volcán de la Corona is one of the most extensive and interesting on the planet. Throughout its journey, there are at least sixteen Jameos.

The Gulf

The Gulf

The Gulf is one of the few and rare examples of hydrovolcanism, a volcanic activity that occurs near the coast. In its interior, in the center of the same crater, the Laguna de los Ciclos has emerged, an intense green lake; color that is produced by the concentration of maritime ruppia, an alga of marine origin.
Jameos del Agua

Jameos de Agua

The Jameos del Agua, like the Cueva de los Verdes, are located inside the volcanic tunnel produced by the eruption of the Volcán de la Corona. The Jameos del Agua are located in the section of this tunnel closest to the coast. They owe their name to the existence of an inner lake that constitutes a unique geological formation. It originates by filtration when being below sea level.
Cactus garden

Cactus garden

The Cactus Garden represents a magnificent example of an architectural intervention integrated into the landscape. César Manrique realizes this audacious architectural complex maintaining the unbreakable binomial of art and nature that is breathed in all his spatial interventions.
Los Hervideros

Los Hervideros

Los Hervideros is the name by which the coastal area is known where you can contemplate the violent beating of the waves on the passageways that formed in the path of the lava towards the sea. When the sea is raging, it takes advantage of the holes in the lava and rises to the surface as if it were boiling water.

Mirador del Río

The Mirador del Río is located on the top of the Risco de Famara, 400 meters above sea level, in the northernmost part of the island from where we can see one of the most spectacular panoramic views of Lanzarote. It is one of the most representative architectural creations of César Manrique.
Fire Mountains
montañas-de-fuego

Fire Mountains

The Mountains of Fire or Timanfaya are part of a large area affected by volcanic eruptions occurred in Lanzarote between 1730-1736 and later in 1824. This long eruptive process, one of the most relevant and spectacular historical volcanism of the Earth , drastically changed the morphology of the island, practically buried a quarter of it under a thick mantle of lava and ash.
Monument to the Peasant

Monument to the Peasant

In the geographical center of Lanzarote, in a significant crossroads from where we can access any point of the island, one of the works of César Manrique is most charged with symbolic references: the architectural ensemble of the Casa-Museo del Campesino and Monumento to Fecundity.
Salinas del Janubio
salinas-del-janubio

Salinas del Janubio

Las Salinas del Janubio is a place of scientific interest where we try to protect, besides the fauna, the traditional activity in obtaining salt. Prior to the eruptions of 1730-1736, it housed the best natural harbor in Lanzarote, but the eruptions also created a sand bar that would close an internal lagoon forming the Caleta del Janubio.
