The International Museum of Contemporary Art MIAC is located in the old military fortress of the Castle of San José. The museum was founded in 1975 with the aim of «promoting, gathering and exhibiting the most significant works of modern artistic creation».
The tunnel formed by the Corona Volcano is one of the largest and most interesting on the planet. Along its route, there are at least sixteen Jameos. More than six kilometres of the tunnel are known, extending from the crater of the volcano to where it enters the sea, in an underwater stretch of one and a half kilometres called the «Tunnel of Atlantis».
El Golfo is one of the few rare examples of hydro volcanism; volcanic activity that occurs close to the coast. In its interior, in the centre of the crater itself, the lagoon of los Ciclos has emerged; a deep green lake, the colour of which is produced by the concentration of ruppia maritima, an algae of marine origin.
Jameos del Agua, like the Cueva de los Verdes, is located inside the volcanic tunnel produced by the eruption of the Corona Volcano. The “Jameos del Agua” are located in the section of this tunnel closest to the coast. They owe their name to the existence of an interior lake that constitutes a singular geological formation. It originates by filtration as it is located below sea level.
The Cactus Garden is a magnificent example of an architectural intervention integrated into the landscape. César Manrique created this audacious architectural complex while maintaining the unbreakable combination of art and nature that permeates all of his spatial interventions.
Los Hervideros is the name by which the coastal area is known, where you can contemplate the violent pounding of the waves over the passages that were formed in the path of the lava flowing towards the sea. When the sea is rough, it takes advantage of the holes in the lava and rises to the surface as if it were boiling water.
The Mirador del Río is located at the top of the Risco de Famara, at an altitude of 400 metres, in the northernmost part of the island, from where we can admire one of the most spectacular panoramic views of Lanzarote. It is one of César Manrique’s most representative architectural creations.
The Fire Mountains or Timanfaya form part of a large area affected by the volcanic eruptions that took place on Lanzarote between 1730-1736 and later in 1824. This long eruptive process, one of the most important and spectacular in the history of volcanism on Earth, drastically changed the morphology of the island, practically burying a quarter of it under a thick blanket of lava and ash.
In the geographical centre of Lanzarote, at a significant crossroads from where any point on the island may be accessed, one of César Manrique’s most symbolic works stands out: the architectural complex of the Casa-Museo del Campesino and Monumento a la Fecundidad (Peasant’s House-Museum and Monument to Fertility).
The Salinas del Janubio is a place of scientific interest where, not only the fauna is protected but also the traditional method of obtaining salt. Before the eruptions of 1730-1736 it was home to the best natural harbour of Lanzarote, but the eruptions also created a sand bar that enclosed an internal lagoon forming the Caleta del Janubio.
