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 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.
For the next 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.
Next is the choice to visit either Jameos del Agua or Cueva de los Verdes. Jameos del Agua is a series of collapsed and partly flooded volcanic caves that Manrique converted into an auditorium and visitor centre. Cueva de los Verdes is a lava tube formed some 21,000 years ago that has a section converted into a concert hall and another famous Instagram spot.
Next, we continue our tour at Manrique’s final work, a Cactus garden located in the town of Guatiza, famous for the cultivation of cochineal. The final stop on the tour is the César Manrique Foundation which was the artist’s home until 1988.
