Activities in Lanzarote

The national park of Timanfaya is a volcanic field certainly worth seeing. Here, visitors can appreciate a great variety of geological phenomena and plant species. La Cueva de los Verdes, in the northern part of Lanzarote, to the south-east of the volcano Monte de la Corona, forms part of a spectacular system of underground grottoes (the jameos). It is not only one of the most interesting volcanic formations on the island, but also one of the longest volcanic galleries in the world (6 km long). For those interested in culture, the César Manrique Foundation is the island’s cultural center par excellence and has won international recognition to prove it. Not only does it house some of the works of the famous artist himself but it also exhibits works of prestigious artists such as Picasso, Miró, Chillida and Klee. Santa Bárbara Castle, now the Museum of Emigration, sits on the Guanapay mountain, to the east of Teguise. It was built in the 16th century as a watchtower for the coastlines on both sides of the island.
A gastronomical tip: Try papas arrugadas, which are boiled in extremely salty water and eaten with hot Mojo sauce
