Overview
More
Located 400 metres high, on the Risco de Famara, the Mirador del Río is one of César Manrique's most representative architectural creations as it shows a series of artistic and architectural details and his eagerness to combine art and nature. It is located near the remains of an ancient military base that dates back to the end of the 19th Century. It is camouflaged on the rock in a way in which only a genius of Manrique's magnitude could conceive.

It's alright for the view but I think a little silly to have to pay to get in. The building itself is interesting but I think Lagomar is a better visit if you're into architecture. On a clear day you can see to La Graciosa....More

This is definitely a must see in Lanzarote. The entrance is €4 but it's worth it. You have a magnificent view of Graciosa.

Amazing view point! You can walk around and there is a little restaurant too. It wasn’t busy at all so we had enough time to take some nice pictures.

built high up so the views are spectacular, well worth a visit unless there is low cloud as you will be in the clouds.
