Top 3 Things to do in Lanzarote.
The Volcano Park at Timanfaya is Lanzarote´s most popular tourist attraction. Every year close to one million people visit this unique lava-scape. Which is home to a sea of colourful dormant volcanoes and spent cones. The volcanic region covers about one quarter of the island´s surface area and is Lanzarote´s 'must-see´ attraction.
The Cueva de los Verdes
The Cueva de los Verdes or Green Caves are part of the Atlantida underground Cave system formed some 3000 years ago during the eruptions of the Corona Volcano (in the north of Lanzarote). The original inhabitants, often referred to as the Guanches, and later the Hispanic population, would shelter here from Pirates that once tormented the Island.
The Castillo de San Jose
The Castillo de San Jose was built in 1799 to protect the Harbour from Pirate Attack but became known as the Fortaleza del hambre (Hunger Fortress) because of the much needed employment that it gave to the island's then impoverished population. The castle never faced any real military threat and was used as a gunpowder arsenal. It remained in Military use until 1890, but then stood vacant until 1974 when César Manrique converted it into a Modern Art Gallery and Restaurant, the Museo International de Arte Contemporáneo.
