Lanzarote has almost three million visitors each year, attracted by the island’s beauty and gorgeous climate.
Mirador del Río
Manrique’s spectacular viewpoint set into the Famara cliffs looks out over La Graciosa and the rest of the islands of the Chinijo Archipelago.
Cueva de los Verdes
The oldest of Lanzarote’s tourist centres is a marvelously lit tour through a volcanic cave system. The optical illusion towards the end is genuinely stunning.
Jameos del Agua
Manrique’s space age party venue is located in a lava bubble, where a legendary lake filled with unique blind crabs is flanked by restaurants, cafés, a volcano museum and a natural concert auditorium.
MIAC: Castillo de San José
This 250-year old fortress overlooks Arrecife’s commercial port and is home to an art gallery featuring works by Picasso, Tapies, Miró and other modern artists. With a famous restaurant and attractive gardens, it’s a glimpse of the island’s past and future.
Manrique’s favourite of his creations, this charming garden features over 1,400 different types of cactus and is set in a disused quarry in the heart of Lanzarote’s cochineal country. A traditional windmill overlooks the scene.
La Casa Amarilla
The “yellow house”, located at the foot of Arrecife’s main shopping street, is the old seat of the island’s government, and is now an art gallery and information centre.
Timanfaya: The Fire Mountains
Lanzarote’s most popular outing offers pure, breathtaking spectacle at one of the newest landscapes in the world. Take an unforgettable coach trip through the volcanoes and see the power and heat of the earth’s inner crust.
Casa-Museo del Campesino
This complex of buildings in the very centre of Lanzarote is overlooked by Manrique’s 15m high monument to the Farm Worker. Visitors can buy unique souvenirs, see exhibitions and take part in traditional activities.
