Lanzarote is one of the islands of the Canary Islands and is situated about 130 kilometers off the northwest coast of Africa. Lanzarote is a volcanic island, thus it is not surprising that some places on the island are covered with lava and look like a lunar landscape as there is almost no vegetation. The Timanfaya National Park is composed of volcanic craters, lava fields, etc. Here tourists are standing on a magma chamber where different volcanic layers are visible below the ground. If a bucket of water is poured into a hole it will be cast back up with amazing power. A major artist of Lanzarote, Cesar Manrique, did a lot to preserve the original character of the island. He saw to it that only the traditional colors of green, blue and brown are allowed for doors and windows and no structure higher than four stories can be built. Tourist attractions near Timanfaya Park include the old capital of Teguise, the lava tunnels of Cueva de los Verdes and Jameos del Agua, the cactus garden at Guatiza, the Mirador del Rio and the former house of Cesar Manrique. In Teguise you will find, for example, the highest church steeple on the island. At the park you can book a variety of wellness treatments and massages. You can book and pay on the spot.
