Following the Footsteps of César Manrique: Four Art Centers

7. Following the Footsteps of César Manrique: Four Art Centers

César, a multidisciplinary artist, painter, sculptor, conservator of monuments and tourist resorts, designer of landscapes and gardens, and recognized ecologist, created from natural volcanic accidents a tendency that impacted the world. He managed to unite Art, Urbanism and Tourism in a single concept, under a philosophy and model of urban intervention based on sustainability and respect for the natural values of the territory, into what is now a world reference. The Island would be different without the Monument to the Peasant, Los Jameos del Agua, Mirador del Río, Cactus Garden or the Cave of the Greens. It would certainly be less attractive and with much less personality. Not visiting these Centers and works of art, being able to interpret them, is like not even having travelled here. This tour offers you the opportunity to discover the North of Lanzarote having a panoramic of Haría, Riscos de Famara and Volcán de la Corona. You will have the privilege to visit the art centers of Cesar Manrique such as Monument to the Peasant, Cactus Garden, Mirador del Río and Fundación César Manrique. Choose if you wish to visit Jameos del Agua or Cueva de los Verdes, two marvelous art centers which are a must in your visit to Lanzarote.

We liked the access to the Green Caves and Jameos del Agua, because we have the privilege of being the first and having the places just for us! Then we went to another viewpoint (not mirador del rio) because the sky was very overcast. Thus, we were able to admire the island of Graciosa. Around noon, we ate in a buffet restaurant at altitude, all you can eat for €12, very good. We also had the option of bringing our own picnic. In the afternoon, we went to explore the Geria region, and stopped at a vineyard to taste. We then left for a camel ride. (Additionally, 11€/person for 30 min. It was very nice. For those who didn't want to ride a camel, there was a museum to visit. Then, we visited the Timanfaya national park, it was incredible! I recommend. Thank you very much to our guide Andrea who was perfect! Congratulations also to the driver!

Good itinerary. Radmila an excellent guide. I'm not interested in wine tasting or camels and this is the only tour I could find that avoids both. Annoying to pay 1 euro to use the toilet at Yaiza stop; organisers should negotiate with the cafe to avoid that.

the trip is totallx worth it. you will see the most interesting and impressive sites of lanzarote. our driver manolo was the best.

Great guide and very safe driver. Enough time at each stop, very well balanced trip

Superb excursion with a guide who speaks French and other languages very well.
