Fire Mountains or Timanfaya National Park:

Timanfaya, Lanzarote, Islas CanariasWithout doubt, this is one of the most remarkable places on the planet. Timanfaya is a spectacular sea of lava, dotted with dozens of volcanic cones which rose from the earth between 1730 and 1736. Six years of continuous volcanic eruptions created an incredible lunar landscape and is why it deserves to be a National Park. This is where the restaurant El Diablo, one of the works of the artist César Manrique, can be found.

Cueva de los verdesIn the middle of La Corona malpais, off the north east coast of Lanzarote and next to Los Jameos del Agua, you will find the Green Cave which is in a volcanic tube known as the Atlantic Tunnel, one of the biggest in the world in its category.

The Green Cave was formed by the advance of the lava coming from the Corona Volcano, more than 3000 years ago.

In the past, this cave was used by the local people as a refuge against pirate attacks who came to the island in search of slaves. A visit to the cave lasts about one hour and is accompanied by a guide who explains the characteristics of the cave.

Jameo is a local word for the space which is created when the roof of a volcanic cave is too heavy or there is an accumulation of gases which makes it collapse.

Mirador del Río:

Mirador del RíoEl Río is the narrow straits which separates Lanzarote from La Graciosa. From the top of the Famara Cliffs, you have some incredible views of the islets which form the Chinijo Natural Park. From the top, you can contemplate the crystal clear waters whose colours range from an emerald green to dark blue. This is one of the two Marine Parks in the Canary Islands.

In an strategic position at the top of the cliffs, you will find another César Manrique work which dates back to 1973, El Mirador del Río. The building of this site was very difficult as they had to excavate rock from the cliff so as not to destroy the surroundings and to minimise the visual impact. El Mirador is semi circular and built entirely of rock.

El Mirador, at 500 metres, is the ideal place to observe the bottom of the cliffs of Famara, a former salt works and amazing deserted beaches which you can only reach either by boat or by a hard descent on foot.

El Jardín de Cactus is situated in Guatiza, off the north east coast of Lanzarote in the municipality of Teguise and is another tourist site which is well worth a visit.

El Jardín de Cactus was built in a volcanic stone quarry from the last century which was later used as a rubbish tip. César Manrique took the place over and converted it into this marvellous terraced garden which looks like a Roman amphitheatreo.

One of the main features of the garden is a beautiful restored windmill. In the past it was used to grind toasted grain to make 'gofio', a cereal used by Canarian people for centuries.

Blending perfectly into the surroundings, you will find a restaurant/cafe with a terrace in front of the garden as well as a shop which sells handicrafts and presents.

The surrounding cactus plantations attract a parasite called the cochineal beetle, from which they extract a natural dye of the same name. Using traditional methods, Carminic acid is extracted and used in food and cosmetic industries. Nowadays, Lanzarote is again trying to make this industry profitable.

Servicios: Restaurant / Cafe 10:00 to 18:30 h.

San Jose Castle:

astillo de San Jose, Arrecife, Lanzarote, Islas CanariasKing Carlos III ordered the building of this castle between the years 1776 and 1779 in the port of Arrecife to protect the island from pirate attacks. This was after the recent volcanic eruptions in the XVIII century, so many people in Lanzarote needed the work to survive and this is why it became known as the Fort of Hunger.

It was César Manrique who made local authorities interested in renovating the old castle and transforming it into a Museum of Contemporary Art. Manrique worked on the surrounding area and built an open area from where youn can appreciate the castle in all its glory. On the foundations, he built a restaurant in front of the sea with glass windows covering the whole front. There are splendid views for everybody who has the opportunity to enjoy a good Canarian meal, made from the best products, in the restaurant.

The museum can be entered in two ways : crossing the drawbridge in front of the car park or directly to the restaurant via a stone path near a low cliff. It is open seven days a week and entrance is free.

Monumento al Campesino:

Monumento al CampesinoThis place pays tribute to the farmers of the island, country people, who through their effort have created a unique landscape in the world, La Geria. César Manrique wanted to pay homage and immortalise this way of life, the country people of Lanzarote, their houses, their work tools, their traditional crafts etc. The Monument is an old farm house which was restored by the artist who put all his energy and aspiration into the work, curved shapes, flat rooves, white facades and wooden frames painted green.

In the middle of a crossroads (which represents the geographical centre of the island), situated between San Bartolomé, Tinajo, La Geria and Famara, you will see a sculpture, made of water tanks taken from old fishing boats.

This sculpture is also known as the 'Fertility Monument' because of the water tanks and how water has always made life difficult for the farmers of Lanzarote.
