Why should I visit Lanzarote?
When you think of Lanzarote, you probably picture package holiday deals and pie-and-chip resorts, but in fact Lanzarote oozes Mediterranean culture. The Canary Islands have a vibrant, lively culture full of fiestas, music, literature, art, dance, interesting traditions and gastronomic delights.
The iconic Gothic Cathedral dominates the skyline and hides a treasure trove of religious ruins and contemporary art. Explore the labyrinthine cobbled streets filled with delis, boutiques, cafés and galleries. Or get outside and make the most of the sunshine on one of the hundreds of kilometres of trails and seaside paths that offer breath-taking scenery.
Lanzarote boasts an abundance of unique fiestas and festivals throughout the year that are well worth visiting. Most of the musical events – such as the famous Visual Music Festival – take place in the volcanic caves of Lanzarote’s amazing nature attractions Jameos del Agua and Cueva de los Verdes in the northern part of the island.
In Lanzarote you will find many Spanish and Mediterranean dishes, but you shouldn’t leave without trying some traditional Canarian food. Papas Arrugadas or Canarian potatoes are locally grown small potatoes that are boiled in very salty water (originally sea water) in their skins and served with different fillings. For dessert, order bienmessabe, a deliciously sweet dish made with ground almonds, honey and egg yolks. It can come as a soaked sponge cake or used as a sauce over ice cream.
