Cueva de los Verdes
Another of the top things to do in Lanzarote is La Cuerva de los Verdes which extends for over 6 km above sea level. This incredible cave system lies in northeastern Lanzarote and is well worth a visit. The cave is a lava tube that came to be after the eruption of Volcán de la Corona.
Many that visit here combine their day with a trip to Jameos del Agua which is 5 minutes away. Both attractions had a heavy influence from César Manrique. The original cave saw a lot of work during the 1960’s to adapt it to how it appears today.
A clever lighting system highlights the shadows in a unique way. You can see evidence of the lava flow as you inspect the lit walls. The ceilings here are quite low and the ground a little uneven so you should wear suitable footwear.
It’s a good idea to take a camera along to record the experience. You should be able to take pictures of everything but be sure to listen to the guide. Some areas may be off limits
Cuerva de los Verdes often hosts musical events. The underground acoustics of the cave amplifies the concert music. Currently the fee for adults is 9,50 € and 4,75 € for children. A great tip is to go after 3 pm when there are less people and claim a 20% discount.
The cave is open every day from 10 am until 6 pm. This timetable extends until 7 pm during the summer months. Each visit will usually last for 50 minutes inside the cave.
