Owner description: The Jameos del Agua was the Centre of Art, Culture and Tourism to be created by César Manrique and reflects one of the cornerstones of his creative work: harmony between nature and artistic creation. The Jameos del Agua are located inside the volcanic tunnel created by the eruption of La Corona Volcano, one of the longest in the world, at 6 kilometres in length.

The first Manrique project to make hostile nature available to visitors in a way that doesn't betray it. Amazing sights and a very educational information centre about volcanoes. We went during daytime, but it's probably very exciting to attend a concert or movie screening.

Just wanted to get in the pool but couldn't!
Great example of cesar manrique architecture and his influence on Lanzarote. Stunning setting using the lava tunnels and caves to create an entertainment space.
His home on Lanzarote gets great reviews and many visitors but jameos del agua in my eyes is much more attractive.
Hidden from the road and surrounding landscape, because it's in a lava tunnel, you have no idea it's there or what's in store.
The little albino crabs are weird.
The websites description I've copied now is very accurate.

Jameos Del Agua, located in the north of Lanzarote, is part of the Atlantida volcanic cave system formed by the eruptions of the Corona volcano about three to four thousand years ago. This larger cave system also includes Cueva de los Verdes.

The word 'Jameo' refers to a volcanic cave with a collapsed roof, of which there are many in this part of Lanzarote.
The Lanzarote-born artist César Manrique has helped to create this spectacle, where these natural 'jameos' have been turned into an Auditorium, Swimming pool, Gardens and Restaurants, while still blending into the surrounding volcanic landscape. Jameos del Agua was the first of the local government's Centres of Art, Culture and Tourism and first opened its doors to the public in 1966, though the centre has seen near-continuous additions and refurbishments since that time.

The recently re-opened natural Auditorium has seating for 600 and is renowned for its excellent acoustics. The premier of the Pedro Almodóvar film, Los Abrazos rotos, starring Penelope Cruz was held there in March 2009.

The underground salt water Lagoon, Jameo Chico, is host to a Species of Blind Albino Crab (Munidopsis Polimorpha) that is found nowhere else.

Opening Hours:
Everyday from 9.30 - 19.00

Ok, it is a very beautiful cave with a natural pool. Apparently there are white crabs inside that you can´t even see. The ticket is too expensive for a visit that you take 10m to do. You pay 9 euros per person. and there is a big line at the entry and a LOT of wind to help.

A really magnificent beauty spot. Cruel to have that gorgeous pool of water and not to dip a toe in on such a blazing day. I dont think the boys appreciated it too much and went off lizard spotting.
