Culture

Lanzarote’s curious volcanic topography and the vision of César Manrique have provided this island with some extraordinary and unusual visits. Start at the Fundación César Manrique museum in Tahiche and then don’t miss the Jameos del Agua and Cuevas de los Verdes or the Timanfaya National Park visit. An integral part of Lanzarote’s identity is the extensive viticulture with traditional bodegas and emblematic grape cultivation systems.
