Overview

There aren’t many places that gather as many areas of interest for the cultural and natural heritage of Lanzarote as Cueva de los Verdes, a unique mythological-looking cave, full of legends and extraordinary landscape and beauty. It came about after the eruption of the Volcán de la Corona, and it’s one of the most impressive hidden wonders in the depths of Lanzarote. It was used as a hideout by the locals who needed shelter to protect themselves from invasions and attacks of pirates coming from the north of Africa during the 16th and 17th Centuries. In the 19th Century, it became a must for travellers, experts and European scientists due to the uniqueness of this volcanic territory, named after a family that kept their cattle in the area, the story goes

Interesting to see how lava produced such a massive underground cave. Not many features in this cave but still worth a visit.

This is a guided tour and well worth visiting to see the shape and form of this huge lava tube. There is car parking nearby.

This is a lovely place but those with mobility issues should consider that there are a lot of stairs and only a few places with handrails. There are a few points where you need to bend down to continue. Wear sturdy footwear!
