Visit a volcanic cave in Lanzarote

As you go into the volcanic cave in the north of Lanzarote, it is inevitable to feel that you are going down into another world. You leave behind the sunshine to explore the underground secrets making this a compulsory experience for every tourist. The guided tour, of approximately one hour, will let you see the auditorium built inside the cave. La Cueva de los Verdes, which is the biggest section of lava tunnel in the world, was formed by La Corona volcano of which Los Jameos del Agua is also a part.

An underground work of art by the artist Jesús Soto

La Cueva de los Verdes was used as a place of refuge in the past, a place where the local people could escape from the pirate attacks and the inclement weather. Discovering the unusual shapes which the lava took on when it turned into rock is another of its great charms. The cave has been prepared for visits thanks to local artist Jesús Soto and these take place every twenty minutes.
