If there is one thing that Lanzarote doesn’t lack, it is artistic beauty. From the works created by César Manrique to the art galleries to see on the island. The most iconic is in the old Santo Domingo Convent; built in the 18th Century by Gaspar Rodríguez Carrasco, a Tenerife islander who was rooted in Lanzarote.
