    What to Expect
    Start approx. from: 9:00 am 

    End approx: 6:00 pm 

    A full day dedicated to the work of the late, great, multi-talented  Cesar Manrique, who left his mark all over Lanzarote. We begin at the  Monument “Al Campesino”, in the middle of the island. Manrique designed it in honor of the farmer´s hard work today and in past centuries. Haria, in the north is where Manrique spent the last years of his life. After a stroll around  Haria we head north to the  Mirador del Rio (480m).This spectacular viewpoint carved into the cliff-edge and recreated by Manrique, was once an old artillery post 'Bateria del Rio'. From here, we look down onto the  Chinijo Islands. 

    After lunch you have the choice to visit either the  Green Caves or  Los Jameos del Agua, both part of the 7 km lava tunnel of Monte Corona. The Green Caves, (Las Cuevas de los Verdes), where people used to hide from pirates and slave hunters, have beautiful lighting designed by Jesus Soto, and of course, the great optical illusion. The Jameos del Agua, home of the blind albino crab, has subterranean pathways, an auditorium and La Casa de los Volcanes, a scientific centre dedicated to volcanology studies.  The Cactus Garden, designed on the site of an old 'rofero' has concentric terraces of cacti from Africa, America and the Canary Islands. It has been the last of the of cultural centres opened by Manrique (1990) . To round off the day we visit the Cesar Manrique Foundation where the artist created his living space, within five volcanic bubbles originated with the18th century eruptions. In the foundation there is a collection of Manrique's paintings and architectural designs.

    You will be back at your pick-up point around 6pm.

    I was unaware that if I didn't want to spend an hour (& €8) visiting the artist's house the only option was to walk around the middle of nowhere in the hot sun or sit on the coach with no air conditioning switched on. I ended up feeling nauseous and dizzy from dehydration as

    If the weathers not looking too great, and it sometime does happen it’s well worth a visit to the Green Caves. We went last week, the tour takes 45 mins and descends into a labyrinth of passageways and caves which really have to been seen to be believed having been left by the
