On Lanzarote, the easternmost of the Canary Islands, you can discover all the exoticism of the most amazing volcanic locations, where the hand of man has managed to blend art and nature, creating striking sites of enormous beauty. On many of them, Cesar Manrique, Lanzarote's most universal artist, left his indelible fingerprint converting deserts of lava into true oases of rock, water and tropical vegetation. Proof of this is 'Jameos del Agua', an intricate labyrinth of caves and volcanic tubes, a true paradise for the senses, housing an area for leisure and culture. Here you can enjoy live music and dance in a setting which is a spectacle in itself.

The island, which was declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 1993, has become a point of reference for the world in natural architecture, and how tradition and modernity can be blended and united to give the best of themselves.

En Lanzarote, la más oriental de las Islas Canarias, descubrirás todo el exotismo de los más sorprendentes parajes volcánicos, donde la mano del hombre ha sabido conjugar arte y naturaleza creando espacios de gran belleza y espectacularidad. En muchos de ellos, César Manrique, su artista más universal, dejó una imborrable huella convirtiendo desiertos de lava en auténticos oasis levantados a golpe de roca, agua y vegetación tropical. Prueba de ello son los Jameos del Agua, un intrincado laberinto de cuevas y tubos volcánicos; un verdadero paraíso para los sentidos, donde hay lugar para el ocio y la cultura. Allí podrás disfrutar de música en vivo y danza, en un entorno que es en sí mismo todo un espectáculo.

La Isla, declarada Reserva de Biosfera por la UNESCO en 1993, se ha convertido en referente mundial de la arquitectura natural y de cómo tradición y modernidad pueden armonizar para dar lo mejor de sí mismas. Isla de Lanzarote - Canarias
