Discover the underground wonder of Lanzarote: Jameos del Agua

Lanzarote, one of the Canary Islands, is known for its natural beauty and unique landscapes. Among its most prominent destinations is Jameos del Agua, a true wonder of nature that will immerse you in an underground world of awe and astonishing design. In this article, we will take you on an exciting excursion to Jameos del Agua so you can explore this magical place.

Jameos del Agua

Jameos del Agua is part of the largest volcanic tunnel on the island, created by the Volcán de la Corona about 20,000 years ago. It was the famous Lanzarotean architect and artist César Manrique who transformed this place into a unique tourist attraction in 1966. The excursion to Jameos will take you on an unforgettable journey underground.

Cueva de los Verdes or “The Greens’ Cave”:

The Jameos excursion sometimes includes a visit to the neighbouring Cueva de los Verdes (Greens’ Cave). This cave is connected to Jameos and offers you the opportunity to explore even more impressive underground passages. During the tour, you will immerse yourself in a world of lava stalactites and astonishing geological formations that bring the earth’s depths to life.
