City has a coherence and beauty which combine to
make the island a cultural and tourist centre. UNESCO has
even described the island a World Biosphere Reserve in 1993.
Lanzarote is a windy place, especially in July when it is
strong and consistent. Lanzarote Spain has an attraction in
the form of Timanfaya National Park which is a volcanic landscape.
It is said that the landscape has not changed since the time
it erupted in the 1730’s and covers over a quarter of
the island’s surface. Another major attarction is Montañas
del Fuego known as the Mountains of Fire and is located within
the park. There is a restaurant as well which provides panoramic
views of the park. One can witness the permanent display and
audio-visual presentations at the Timanfaya National Park
Visitors' Centre. These presentations give an insight to the
origin of the island, and the formation of the park due to
the volcanic activity.
One chief attraction is the Jameos del Agua which is a volcanic
formation formed due to the collapse of an underground lava
tunnel which in turn exposes a section of the tunnel to the
sky. Located just a little away from the Jameos del Agua is
the Cueva de los Verdes known as the ‘Green’s
Cave’. Here you can take a guided tour which will take
you through a succession of caverns and tunnels. You can stay
in luxurious villas in Lanzarote or budget as well as star
Lanzarote hotels to experience some of the
best culture and festival carnivals. In the carnivals you
will find groups that compose their own saucy lyrics or groups
who dance to the samba rhythm.
