Mirador del Rio is a lookout point created by Cesar Manrique and located in the north of the island on top of the Famara cliffs, 479 meters (1,571 feet) above sea level. The views of the island of La Graciosa and over the islet of Montana Clara are simply breath-taking. Manrique excavated an opening at the top of the mountain to house a restaurant with a domed ceiling. On the outside the structure is camouflaged by lava rocks and a simple garden.

Cueva de los Verdes is another spectacular system of underground grottoes. It is not only one of the most interesting volcanic formations on the island, but also one of the longest volcanic galleries in the world (6 km/11 miles long). The caves and galleries were created as a result of pre-historic eruptions from the volcano Monte Corona around 5,000 years ago. In 1964 a 2 km (3.7 miles) long path-way was opened to visitors. Sophisticated lighting was added to lend theatrical effects to this wonder of nature.
Open daily: 10:00 – 18:00hrs.

Montanas del Fuego-Timanfaya covers 51 sq. kms (20 sq. miles) of volcano and lava fields where visitors can appreciate a great variety of geological phenomena and a large biological mix of some 180 different plant species. This region was devastated by intermittent volcanic eruptions over a six year period, 1730-1736, and again during the XIX century, mainly in 1824. A guided coach tour through scenery unchanged since the eruptions allows the visitor a clear picture of the staggering natural catastrophe that took place. The restaurant El Diablo, built by Cesar Manrique on top of a volcano in the park, serves meals grilled over geothermal heat.

Castillo de San Jose located in Arrecife was originally a fortress built between 1776 and 1779 by King Carlos III to protect the harbour from pirate attacks. Cesar Manrique, aware of the importance of this site and the need to preserve it as a lasting reminder of the past, converted the castle´s interior in 1974 to house a permanent and international exhibition of modern art. A restaurant is located on the lower level with floor-to-ceiling wrap around windows overlooking the harbour.
