Chandelier

Inside the concert auditorium at Jameos del Agua, Lanzarote. The complex is housed within a 6km lava tube created over 4000 years ago when the Montaña La Corona erupted. Opened in 1966, it comprises open-air caves, an outdoor pool area, a subterranean lake, a bar and restaurant, and obviously the concert auditorium. Like most things on the island, it was conceived by artist César Manrique.

    1. Yeah, Manrique was very patriarchal and controlling, and responsible for much of Lanzorate’s highlights as well as its general style and vibe. He’s also the reason why there are virtually no high-rise buildings on the island, which is great for vistas.

      As usual we went well out of season so didn’t see a concert, but we did have coffee and cake 🙂
