This tour has been designed to see César Manrique’s work in Lanzarote and includes many of the main tourist attractions on the island (entrance fees are included).
The first stop on this tour is at the Timanfaya National Park, where you will visit the César Manrique-designed restaurant that harnesses the volcanic heat for cooking. You will then get to take the bus around the park to see the spectacular volcanic landscape.
Next you will visit the Monumento al Campesino at the centre of the island, an important site on Lanzarote, as the artist restored the eighteenth century building in order to educate people and prevent the island’s traditional architecture from being lost. In front of the country house we find the Monumento al Campesino, a tribute to the farmers of Lanzarote whose labour along with volcanic activity has shaped the landscape of Lanzarote.
From there, we go to the César Manrique Foundation which was the artist’s home until 1988.
We continue our tour at Manrique’s final work, a Cactus garden located in the town of Guatiza, famous for the cultivation of cochineal.
From there, we head north to Jameos del Agua – a series of collapsed and partly flooded volcanic caves that Manrique converted into an auditorium and visitor centre.
For the last stop, we visit Mirador del Rio, where you can enjoy one of Lanzarote’s most stunning views: the islands of La Graciosa and the Archipelago Chinijo.
