César Manrique designed the "Mirador del Río" in 1973, together with Jesús Soto and the architech Eduardo Cáceres, which was considered at the time an architechtural work of great value and Interest.
To the North of the island, 600 metres ofheight right in front of the Famara cliff: one can see the immensity of the Atlantic Ocean, stiched by the island "LA GRACIOSA" and the group of islets Alegranza, Montaña Clara, Roques Del Este and Oeste, which have been declared Seacoast Reserve.
The El Río Lookout offers various perspectives from which to view the surrounding landscape: the large circular indoor window facing the sea, the exterior walkway that circles the building, and the upper terrace that crowns it, accessible by a winding staircase.
The interior is another of the great attractions of this tourist centre.
In front of the Lookout, the views of the arm of the sea that separates Lanzarote and the eighth island El Río are unbeatable as are those of the high escarpments of Famara and Las Salinas, now abandoned.
The Mirador offers a great variety of spots to observe the landscape due to its large circular window inside the building overlooking the sea; from the interior corridor that surrounds the building and from the upper terrace that crowns it.
