This was one of our most unforgettable visits in Lanzarote. The tour of this writers home and library was an enlightening and intimate experience. His art works too are worth seeing. And our guide was very informative and pleasant. A great, great experience.

You don’t have to book in advance, you can just go and buy the tickets there. Isn’t far from puerto del Carmen, however you need a transport to go there. Hope it helps.
