Paradises Secrets of Spain

Cueva de los Verdes

The island of Lanzarote is a magical place, perhaps one of the most beautiful in the Canary Islands by the visual strength of its volcanic landscapes, wildness of its cliffs and the beauty of its interior villages.

But Lanzarote also hides some of the most beautiful underground corners like the Jameos, or the Cueva de los Verdes.

This volcanic tube which is about 7km long also extends underwater making it unique when it joins up with another volcano just a few km away, the Jameos which its major eruption dates back 5,000 years ago.

The main interests of this large cave lies in its vast open spaces (in one of them there is an auditorium) and especially the visual effect that occurs in one of its largest halls, the image.

The mirror effect is a real deception to our eyes of which we believe to experience a huge opening under our feet, when in reality what we see is the reflection of the caves’ surroundings. The effect is so real that some people feel dizzy, so we don’t recommend eating or drinking too much before the visit, nah, we are kidding.
