What to see in Máguez?

  • The Mirador de Guinate route is without doubt one of the best activities to do in Haría. At the top of Risco de Famara, there is a perfect spot to see the Chinijo Archipelago in all its glory. It is a window to the Atlantic Ocean, where only those lucky enough to visit the island can enjoy the views.
  • Mirador del Río: Located at one of the highest parts on the island (at around 400 m), the Mirador del Río is one of most impressive works created by the artist César Manrique. It is part of a set of touristic centres created by the artist and there you can take in the best view of the Chinijo Archipelago and El Río, a narrow stretch of water which separates Lanzarote from La Graciosa and the rest of the islets. This building is a clear example of the synergy between the architecture and nature that symbolises the island, as its volcanic walls and the Aeonium will make you feel as if you were at the Risco de Famara taking in the views of the landscape.
