Spain’s best known film director, Pedro Almodóvar, is currently spending a holiday on Lanzarote.

The Oscar-winning director was spotted in the Las Dunas restaurant in Famara, where he posed for photos with the Canarian musicians who perform live.

Almodóvar is a long-standing fan of the island, and has returned here several times.  On one occasion he was visiting El Golfo whenhe saw a couple kissing on the black sand beach.  This inspired his 2009 romance, Los Abrazos Rotos, starring Penelopé Cruz, which he partially filmed on the island.
