Ahhh, Lanzarote: The Canary Island paradise where you can ride a camel into the sunset and then dine inside a candlelit cave. The rock formations of Los Hervideros will take your breath away, as will the views from the Mirador del Rio lookout point. Legend has it that locals would hide from pirates in the underground caverns of Cueva de los Verdes, which are now open to curious visitors. Above ground the Jardin de Cactus will teach you all about the spiny desert plants.

The house museum of José Saramago, Nobel Prize for Literature in 1998 is a real immersion in the universe of the Portuguese writer. The guided tour includes first the house and the garden, then the private library and its various work spaces.
A fabulous intimate tour of Jose Saramago’s home in Lanzarote. Alba our guide was informative and only too pleased to answer questions in Spanish, English and French. Walking through his home and library, seeing where he worked, rested and entertained was privilege. I loved his library built to house all and his wife’s books. Allow and hour and a half and make sure you are there for opening at 10.

Home of a famous Spanish artist
Definitely the coolest place to visit on the island. Formed out of lava holes, it's like a 70s Bond film set - we loved it. Cesar Manrique has had a huge influence on the art and architecture on the island - there are some enlightening films to be seen here at his former home as well as much of his art on display. You only need 90 minutes to tour, including a cuppa / snack from the onsite mini cafe, so you may wish to combine it with another trip. We took a tour here with Low Cost Travel, who picked us up from our hotel before going to the Sunday market at Teguise. All was well described by a Danish tour guide.

The breathtaking rockgardens with magic caves, tunnels and secret passages to the lake, nests at the foot of the famous house of Omar Sharif. Conceived bu Cesar Manrique and used for various films with Peter Ustinov, the new open air MUSEUM and art gallery integrates seemlessly into the rocks. The museum host various cultural activities like exhibitions of the properties history and the legend of Omar Sharif. Enjoy this fascinating rockgarden landscape that transports you into 1001 nghts.
This place is simply fabulous, it has lots of hidden seating areas and caves built into the mountainside. Two swimming pools And plenty of cafés. The César Manrique Design of this place is absolutely remarkable. There are twists and turns in tunnels each one leading to a different area. There is plenty to see And it will take you around an hour to go around. You can go right to the top into the living quarters. It really is beautiful and jaw dropping. We stayed here for about two and half hours, we just simply love this place. Be aware there are a lot of steps, be careful if you have problems with your feet on knees. This home once belonged to Omar Sharif, he owned it for one day, then he lost it gambling the next day. I wish I lived here. Around each corner is a surprise, either with seating areas designs of water features or just the beauty of the landscape.

Visiting the home of César Manrique was an interesting experience and gave us a great insight into his life and work. The home has been left so you can imagine him still living there. His taste and display of collected artefacts was delightful. Well worth a visit.

This is such a brilliant little museum, run by volunteers. It is housed in the original airport building and it is fascinating to see how things have changed in what is a relatively short period of time. A great deal of thought and effort has been put into setting up the museum and it's brilliant. You can see the air traffic control part, the cafe area as well as examples of the uniforms worn by the airline staff. There is a good book collection and some excellent posters as well as a very thought-provoking cabinet showing the kinds of items that were confiscated. When we visited there was also an excellent display of aircraft and airport related models, all made from recycled plastic. There were some excellent little booklets available too, aimed at children. It's a wonderful little museum.

Visited this centre following tour of the National Park. Well worth a visit and timed to experience a simulated volcanic eruption. There is no charge for this centre which was a surprise to us. Will recommend to all.

We loved this place and can’t believe it had so little publicity. There are two entrances, looking at the front of the property you enter by the left door. Currently €3 per adult. There is a VR experience of an archaeological dig which I found amazing - so much thought had gone into the displays. Although small (3 main areas) they pack a good deal of information into them. There are more resources than you’ll have time to see!! There are examples of amphorae, millstones and other fragments in addition to some underwater finds. Once you finish the left side, your ticket also gets you into the right side which deals with the history of the magnificent building. We spent 90 mins total and I loved every minute. I hope they decide to expand as it is showing great promise at the minute
