We start our excursion with a visit to the Monumento al Campesino, the work of César Manrique, and a tribute to the work in the fields of the Lanzarote community.
We will continue our visit through the volcanic nature of Lanzarote, always present in the work of César Manrique, we will discover it in all its splendor during the visit to the Cueva de los Verdes: the longest lava tunnel in the world. This work of César Manrique gives the sensation of entering the interior of Mother Earth, leaving unique and unforgettable sensations for all those who enter the cave. The curious thing about this tunnel lies in its natural origin, the result of lava (eruptions of the Corona volcano).
On our next stop, we visit the Jameos del Agua*: the first work of César Manrique which inspired much of the following works of the Lanzarote artist on the island.
*Jameos del Agua is a unique enclave in the world after the lava from the Corona volcano collapsed the roof of its volcanic tube. The tunnel is 6 km long, of which at least 1.5 km run under the Atlantic Ocean thanks to its proximity to the sea.
Upon entering you will be greeted by a small Jameo with large ferns. This unique Jameo has a charming cafeteria that blends in with its surroundings. Jameos del Agua features a unique endemic crab (Munidopsis Polimorpha), characterized by being blind, albino, and measuring less than 1 cm.
Leaving the large Jameo, we find a room in which we can appreciate a long crystalline pool surrounded by palm trees and cacktus that offer impressive views. Just behind, we find the auditorium: a magical place where concerts and shows are held.
Once this visit is over, we head back to our accommodation.
