Things to do in Lanzarote

Lanzarote offers lots of different attractions, this page has information and links to the main attractions in Lanzarote

1. Mirador del Rio, Lanzarote

The Mirador del Rio provides spectacular views of the Chinijo Archipelago, which consists of La Graciosa, Montana Clara and Alegranza as well as the islets of Roque del Este and Roque del Oeste.

The early inhabitants of the island used this site as a Lookout point as Lanzarote was often attacked by pirates. In 1898 the ‘Bateria del Rio’ was built as an Artillery base where the Canons now resting at the
Castillo de San Gabriel once resided.

In 1973
Cesar Manrique turned the Bateria del Rio into a restaurant and Tourist Centre.

Opening Hours: Everday 10.00 - 18.00
Admission: €4.70 Euro

2. Jameos del Agua

Jameos Del Agua, located in the north of Lanzarote, is part of the Atlantida volcanic cave system formed by the eruptions of the Corona volcano about three to four thousand years ago. This larger cave system also includes Cueva de los Verdes.

The word ‘Jameo’ refers to a volcanic cave with a collapsed roof, of which there are many in this part of Lanzarote.
The Lanzarote-born artist
César Manrique has helped to create this spectacle, where these natural ‘jameos’ have been turned into an Auditorium, Swimming pool, Gardens and Restaurants, while still blending into the surrounding volcanic landscape. Jameos del Agua was the first of the local government’s Centres of Art, Culture and Tourism and first opened its doors to the public in 1966, though the centre has seen near-continuous additions and refurbishments since that time.

The recently re-opened natural Auditorium has seating for 600 and is renowned for its excellent acoustics. The premier of the Pedro Almodóvar film, Los Abrazos rotos, starring Penelope Cruz was held there in March 2009.

The underground salt water Lagoon, Jameo Chico, is host to a Species of Blind Albino Crab (Munidopsis Polimorpha) that is found nowhere else.

Opening Hours:
Everyday from 9.30 - 19.00
Tuesday, Friday and Saturday from 19.00 - 02.00

Telephone: +34 928 848020

3. LagOmar Museum

Legend has it that this heavenly place once belonged to the famous actor Omar Sharif, who fell in love with the house while filming in Lanzarote. filming the mini-series “The Mysterious Island”. Despite his association with this place, Sharif was actually the owner for less than a day before he lost it to the Nazaret Oasis’s developer, Sam Benady, in a bridge game.

In the museum you can travel through the
history of LagOmar’s development and learn about Omar Sharif and his legendary career. As a visitor you can enjoy all of the unique and organic architecture, that is seamlessly integrated with the labyrinth of caves.

This has all been continued and maintained by the German architect Dominik Von Boettinger and the Uruguayan architect Beatriz Van Hoff, who as current owners and have respected the nature and style of the space. They have kept the distinctive features created by the noted Lanzarote artist and landscape painter, Jesus Soto.

The chameleon-like caves are truly exceptional - a place that you can visit more than once, yet experience something new with each visit.

4. The Cave of Los Verdes

The Cueva de los Verdes or Green Caves are part of the Atlantida underground Cave system formed some 3000 years ago during the eruptions of the Corona Volcano (in the north of Lanzarote). The original inhabitants, often referred to as the Guanches, and later the Hispanic population, would shelter here from Pirates that once tormented the Island.

The tunnel is over 6 km long with an additional 1.6 km under the sea and is one of the longest Volcanic Tunnels in the World (the underwater section has not been fully explored), although only about 2 km are open to the public.
The cave measures more than 15 meters wide and 15 m high.

The Caves are not named after the colour Green, but rather a family whose surname was Verde (Green), although the Caves are indeed colourful, especially since they have been carefully and thoughtfully artificially lit for the public.

The caves are definitely worth a visit and if the molten wax-like rock isn’t enough to impress you, the secret of
Cueva de los Verdes will be.

The lowest part of the cave is used occasionally as a concert hall and is an impressive sight in itself..

Opening Hours: 10.00 - 18.00 (final Admission 17.00)

5. Timanfaya National Park

The Montañas del Fuego (Fire Mountains) were created between 1730 and 1736 when more than 100 volcanoes, covering more than 50 km², rose up and devastated this part of the island (including several villages). The last eruptions were in 1824, however due to the low rainfall (and therefore lack of erosion) this area appears much the same as it did just after the eruptions. In 1968 the area was declared a national park, Parque Nacional de Timanfaya. This part of the island is a must for any visitor to the island because of its unique ‘Martian’ landscape and rare plant species. After you arrive at the visitors Car Park you will witness several demonstrations of ‘how hot’ the area is (temperatures just a few metres below the surface reach between 400°C and 600°C). Dry brush thrown into a hole in the ground catches fire immediately, while water poured into a bore hole erupts seconds later in the form of steam - like a mini-geyser.

The ‘El Diablo’ restaurant provides an impressive backdrop to all of this and serves Canarian food which is cooked using geothermal heat (A cast-iron grill placed over a large hole in the ground). It is advised to arrive here early if you would like to sample the food, since the Kitchen closes at 3.00pm. While it is not possible to just wander freely around the Volcanoes, a Coach Trip around the National Park (La Ruta de los Volcanos) is included in the entry fee. The Tour features an Audio Commentary that includes excerpts from the diary of a local Priest who was an eyewitness to the devastating Eruptions.

The Spanish National Parks authority have recently launched a free guided walk service (available in Spanish or English) along two routes in the park. To avail of this service you must book at least 48 hours in advance. More details can be found at their website
Timanfaya National Park

It is also possible to take a Camel ride across the Volcanic landscape (not included in the entry fee).

Guinate Wildlife Park is located in the northern part of Lanzarote, at the foot of Mount Corona, an extinct volcano which is one of the highest points of the island. The Park is set in 45,000 sq metres (about 11 acres) of gardens, waterfalls and ponds and is home to many species of birds, animals, reptiles and fish.

It lies near the
Famara Cliffs, 400 metres above sea level, from which a spectacular view of the islands of La Graciosa, Alegranza and Montaña Clara can be seen.

It is also home to the Park’s unique Penguin Paradise, allowing you an insight into the underwater life and behaviours of these amazing and loveable birds with a spectacular underwater viewing pool.

Visitors can observe an ample variety of warm water sharks, swimming gently inside the main water tank of 400,000 litres from a submarine tunnel.

Lanzarote Aquarium has three touching-pools where both children and adults can touch and enjoy animals such as sea cucumbers, starfish, sea urchins, coastal-zone fish and small crabs while learning about their anatomy and way of life.

The aim of the Aquarium is to show the marine world and all its wonders to everybody who wants to enjoy an escape from reality by
diving into the depths of the sea. However, the great importance of environment education has not been forgotten.

8. El Golfo and Los Hervideros, Lanzarote

El Golfo
El Golfo (Charco de los Clicos) is a semi-circular Volcanic Crater (half of it has been eroded by the sea) filled with Sea-water that has filtered through the black sand that seperates the lagoon from the sea.

The Green Lagoon (the colour is caused by algae living in the water) contrasting with a black sand beach and wierd looking rock formations make for quite a spectacular site.

The nearby village of the same name is worth checking out for its seafood

Los Hervideros
Los Hervideros (literally the ‘Boiling Waters’) are a series of caves and blow holes which have been eroded into a former Lava flow.

As the waves crash into the caves, mountains of white surf are produced, giving the appearance of ‘Boiling Waters’.

Here it is possible to walk around the cliffs and watch the breakers crash into the caves from one of the natural ‘balconies’.

9. The Cactus Garden

El Jardin del Cactus was designed by the late Lanzarote Artist Cesar Manrique.
This impressive collection of Cacti, which were selected by the Botanist Estanislao Gonzales Ferrer, features well over 1000 species of Cactus.

The restored windmill and strange metal sculptures make for an impressive contrast against the dry volcanic landscape.

Opening Hours: 10.00 - 18.00
Telephone: +34 928 529397

10. The Wine Museum of Lanzarote

The Wine Museum of Lanzarote is located at the old cellars of the “El Grifo” wineries, which were built over the volcanic lava left from the 18th century eruption. According to trust-worthy reports, they were built in the year 1775, making this the oldest winery in the Canaries. Since then, wine has been made here without interruption. The present owner’s family acquired the property and cellars in 1880.

The old buildings were erected with the rough materials typical of Lanzarote; thick walls of volcanic stone and mortar, with the ceiling beams largely from salvaged ship-wrecks.

While the buildings themselves are of some historical importance, so too are the ancient tools and machinery which have been preserved and are now on show in the wine museum. People who have some knowledge of wine-making would observe that the evolution of the wine making was not very different here than in other wine making countries, however in Lanzarote, due to its remoteness and communication problems, this evolution was several decades behind. This allows the observation of methods and machinery which were no longer in use anywhere else during the twentieth century.

Museo El Grifo
Open to the public every day of the year
10.30 – 18.00

Entrance fee is 3 euro per adult which includes a free wine tasting

11. Castillo de San Gabriel, Arrecife, Lanzarote

The Castillo de San Gabriel was first built in 1574 in order to defend Arrecife Harbour.
However it was destroyed just a few years later by the Algerian Pirate Morato Arraez in 1586.

The castle was then rebuilt in 1599 and was used for military purposes right up until the 1950s.

It now houses an archaeological Museum.

The Puento de las Bolas is the drawbridge entrance to the Castillo de San Gabriel and dates from 1559.

12. Castillo de San Jose, Arrecife, Lanzarote

Puerto Naos

The Castillo de San Jose was built in 1799 to protect the Harbour from Pirate Attack but became known as the
Fortaleza del hambre (Hunger Fortress) because of the much needed employment that it gave to the island’s then impoverished population. The castle never faced any real military threat and was used as a gunpowder arsenal.

It remained in Military use until 1890, but then stood vacant until 1974 when César Manrique converted it into a Modern Art Gallery and Restaurant, the
Museo International de Arte Contemporáneo.
