If you like a panoramic view then you must see this. Fabulous view of La Graciosa. Costs 4.5 euros. Only requires a short time but totally worth it. Cafe and facilities and a couple of metal pieces of art. The journey to this point is fun.

After being recommended to visit Mirador Del Rio we weren't sure what to expect. On arrival we were amazed by the views from the cafe. Definitely a must see whilst staying in lanzarote!!

You park up outside what looks to be nothing but a stone wall, then walk into a magnificent panoramic viewpoint with unique architecture and the most amazing views. Sit down and have a coffee from the bar and look down onto the blue waters and cliffsides, with the northern islands in the distance. Upstairs there is a small gift shop,... More

Breathtaking view to La Graciosa island! Great for taking pictures. You need a hire car to get there. Best attraction of Lanzarote. You will have to pay €4.50 to get in. Stunning masterpiece by Cesar Manrique.

This is a unique piece of architecture build in an old fort by Cesar Manrique. It has a beautiful view over the ocean and neighbouring islands. A must see!

it's the only place I really wanted to see while on Lanzarote. I saw photos of it and really wanted to go and I'm so glad we did. The view is amazing (even though you can just park there and check out the view 3min further down) - on a clear and sunny day the view is even better and... More

You'll need a car or taxi to get out here, though the local bus does go close. Spectacular views over the island of Graciosa is the main reason for being here but it's the Viewing area and Café designed by Cesar Manrique that gives you the chance to take it in. Café a little basic and limited and slow, but... More

If you have a hire car, then do not miss coming here, the views are stunning, especially the small island of La Graciosa, you can see quite a lot from the nearby terrain without going into the Mirador, but having been more than once over the years, I still think it is better to go inside, besides, the footing outside...

We visited here as part of a multi-venue €30 ticket. We've been her before, but it is so worth the return visit. I've recommended this place before, about 12 years ago. The view gives me the impression of what it would be like for early explorers looking out and thinking they have reached the end of the world. You are... More

You don't really have to go in the paid area it is enough to stop by the little road and walk around the cliff edge. Be careful, it is very high.
