Well worth a visit - the views are stunning and the snack bar provides an excellent setting for a drink and a bite to eat. Not sure the €4:50 entrance fee is real value for money, but don't let it put you off visiting.

Mirador del Rio is beautifully located at the north end of the island inside a cliff. The architecture is amazing and it looks like something that should belong in a movie. We had some very good coffees while enjoying the view. Take your time to wonder around the place and admire the work. The building blends in and is part... More

An absolute surprise to walk out and see the fantastic view of the island of Graciosa which sits north of Lanzarote from about 350m up. Entrance €4.50 per person. Cafe on site and a part of the attraction as carved out of the mountainside. Unforgettable views. Car needed to get to (unless on an organised trip), well signposted from both... More

We have been to Mirador del Rio several times over the years and it never fails to take my breath away the views are absolutely awesome expecially if you go up onto the roof. Cesar Manrique designed this place along with most of the attractions on Lanzarote. The man was a genius.

The architecture of Cesar Manrique is all over Lanzarotte but this place is superb. You have no idea what you are going to see when you go inside and then the view just opens up. Tremendous. I want to live there.

My second time to visit Mirador, with 3 kids this time round. The view down the cliffs and across to the island are great, on a clear day. It gives you a feeling of how small we actually are as town across on the island looks tiny due to the height of Mirdaor. There is an indoor section for anyone... More

I visited this lookout on a cloudy dusty day and my friends and I did not come out of our car as you could not enjoy the view so we returned the following day as we were in the area and had tickets for this attraction. The day was very clear and there is a restaurant with full length glass... More

Great view, but the ticket is quite expencive for what you get. The view is almost the same outside but for us seeing the special formations on the mountans that you can only see from the inside was great. Recommend people to buy the package for 3 attractions, so that you get a bit of a discount.

The Mirador del Río was designed by César Manrique and is therefore a lovely place to see in addition to the view it offers. It has a coffee shop/bar and gift shop inside, but you still have to pay admission (over 4 Euros). We went in a little rental car and as you approach the area you first see a... More
