Lanzarote Attractions

For a small island Lanzarote is big on tourist attractions.  The most popular sights are the Centres of Art and Culture that were created by César Manrique - most of which fuse the island's amazing volcanic landscape with the artist's own aesthetic. But Lanzarote is also home to a number of natural wonders too - such as the Green Lagoon at El Golfo and the Valley of 1,000 Palms. Lanzarote is a small island - making it easy to explore.  So we recommend that you take the time to discover some of its many treasures.
