Experience

Full description
César, a multidisciplinary artist, painter, sculptor, conservator of monuments and tourist resorts, designer of landscapes and gardens, and recognized ecologist, created from natural volcanic accidents a tendency that impacted the world. He managed to unite Art, Urbanism and Tourism in a single concept, under a philosophy and model of urban intervention based on sustainability and respect for the natural values of the territory, into what is now a world reference. The Island would be different without the Monument to the Peasant, Los Jameos del Agua, Mirador del Río, Cactus Garden or the Cave of the Greens. It would certainly be less attractive and with much less personality. Not visiting these Centers and works of art, being able to interpret them, is like not even having travelled here. This tour offers you the opportunity to discover the North of Lanzarote having a panoramic of Haría, Riscos de Famara and Volcán de la Corona. You will have the privilege to visit the art centers of Cesar Manrique such as Monument to the Peasant, Cactus Garden, Mirador del Río and Fundación César Manrique. Choose if you wish to visit Jameos del Agua or Cueva de los Verdes, two marvelous art centers which are a must in your visit to Lanzarote.

Very nice guide and driver! the guide we had, Paul, gives interesting details that I had not yet had during my stay. that said, if you are Spanish-speaking it's even better :) although in English it's already good ;) the visits are necessarily timed, but I didn't have the feeling of being "rushed". and then it's the game, so many things in one day! I took advantage of the meal break to take him for a walk in Haria and have some magnificent views of the valley of palm trees (be careful not to miss the time though;)). we chose during the trip between jameos del agua and cueva del verde: the bus dropped off part of the group at jameos while we stayed with Paul for the cueva del verde: and what a visit! beautiful and funny, with a very surprising surprise on our perceptions ;) in short! the best excursion of my week, thank you again!

This activity was great, very interesting and enriching. On the other hand, very disappointed with the transfer at first (the place and time of the meeting were not the right ones despite our cat from the day before the activity, moreover we waited for a long time to wait a 2nd var ) and the language of the excursion which was to be in French when this was not the case at all, there was only Spanish and English. The places visited are all interesting but there is not enough time for visits, especially for the mirador del rio and the cactus garden

A uniquely well organized tour with a very good guide. Lots of information along the way. We particularly liked the long and sufficient length of stay during the visits. Even the entrance fees were included. We actually wanted to do this round with a rental car, but we couldn't get one at short notice. So we decided to do a bus tour, which was a perfect (even better) alternative for us.
