Owner description: Located 400 metres high, on the Risco de Famara, the Mirador del Río is one of César Manrique's most representative architectural creations as it shows a series of artistic and architectural details and his eagerness to combine art and nature. It is located near the remains of an ancient military base that dates back to the end of the 19th Century. It is camouflaged on the rock in a way in which only a genius of Manrique's magnitude could conceive.

“Awesome, Beautiful, Outstanding”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013

Located at the top of the island Mirador Del Rio is a view point which was originally a cannon battery! Cesar Manrique got his design hands on the place and transformed it! There is a cafe / restaurant and gift shop on site and it's well worth a visit if for no other reason than the views.

“Mirador del Rio”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013

Just wonderful! Lovely views from there. You can see La Graciosa, Alegranza, Montaña Clara, etc. Small islands which also belong to Lanzarote. I recommend to take a coffee or something and sit a watch the views, and by the way, why dont take the boat over to La Graciosa!
This I also recommend.

“Well worth the drive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013

Mirador del Rio is a Cesar Manrique piece of art, the view across to the island of La Graciosa is outstanding, facilities are a cafe with the most amazing view ,and Manrique ceiling art, a small souvineer shop, verandas on two levels
Try combining this with either trips to the green caves or my favourite Jameos del Aqua another Manrique masterpiece,

“What a view!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

Pay the entrance fee and go into this mirador for some fantastic views overlooking the island of La Graciosa and the Atlantic. Unique views when you go out onto the veranda and look down / across at the island.
