Your Holidays to Lanzarote Allow You to Visit Popular Places

by Daisy Wilkinson Travel Guides

A year-round pleasant climate is one of the many reasons why tourists from various corners of the globe flock to Lanzarote, a charming Spanish island. The temperatures in this part of the world rarely fall below 21-Degree Celsius during the winters of Europe. You'll find many places on the island to unwind and spend truly relaxed moments. There are several excellent beaches to choose from as well. While enjoying your holiday on this Spanish Island, you'll come across many other fabulous attractions.

One of them is undoubtedly the Timanfaya Volcano Park, which is a wonderful place to visit during your holidays to Lanzarote. It is the island's major tourist attraction and draws almost a million visitors every year. You'll get to see a surreal landscape upon visiting this park. The thrilling terrain was created by the longest volcanic eruption that the world would've rarely experienced before. It began in the year 1730 and continued until 1736, turning the once fertile farmland into an ocean of lava. You'll get to enjoy a guided tour of this volcano park during the tour. While exploring the park, you’ll also get to know the experiences of a local priest who had witnessed the devastating volcanic eruptions.

Your cheap holidays to Lanzarote would also allow you to witness the Cactus Garden. It was created by Cesar Manrique and features the most marvellous species of cacti. You'll be able to witness more than a thousand different species while exploring this garden. They have been arranged in terraces quite artfully and the entire space looks like a bowl-shaped amphitheatre. Visitors to this park would first witness a magnificent, green, metallic sculpture of cacti with a height of about 8 metres as they enter the park. This place is truly a paradise for plant lovers.

Most of the tourists enjoying their cheap holidays to Lanzarote like to visit the Jameos Del Agua, which is a lava tube extending up to 6 kilometres. It is located in the island's northern parts near Punta Mujeres. The popularity of this star attraction is attributed to the fact that its appearance was further enhanced by Cesar Manrique. With the assistance from architects Jesus Soto and Luis Morales, he turned this collapsed lava tube into an impressive subterranean auditorium. An underground lagoon surrounded by bars, restaurant, and tropical gardens creates a unique atmosphere. You'll emerge from this underground area to find a spectacular pool as well. Behind this amazing pool is a concert hall that was formed from a volcanic rock.

You also wouldn't like to miss the Cesar Manrique Foundation, which was created by Cesar Manrique. It was built into five volcanic bubbles and was one of Manrique's first creations on the island. At the time when its creation was in progress, many thought that the idea of transforming Lanzarote into a paradise for tourists was a silly idea. However, when this incredible structure was created by the end of 1968, they were proved wrong. The building won several awards for its architecture and the island suddenly became a popular destination. Manrique was also commissioned by the actor Omar Sharif to build a holiday home of similar style when he saw the building.

You’ll also get to explore some awe-inspiring places during your Fuerteventura holidays.
