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.

“Fantastic views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013

Another Manrique masterpiece with stunning views out over the ocean and over to the island of La Graciosa (which is also worth a visit).

There is a lovely restaurant, too, with the same views through huge windows.

“Great views”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013

Magnificent views of La Graciosa and the Lanzarote coastline, but not much else. A simple modern construction consisting of restaurant and viewpoint. Internally two superb Manrique sculptures enhance the basic structure of the restaurant. Entrance fee on the high side - if it was free more visitors would purchase food, drinks and souvenirs.

“Good Views”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2013

You get good views across to the nearby island and tehre are some interesting rock crops and a turbulent sea, especially if you go when we did with a cool strong wind blowing. Overpriced in my opinion for what is tehre, equally good views from the roadside

“Amazing view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

It was an exceptionally windy day for my visit and standing outside was almost impossible. The view is astounding. The visitor centre is nice and I would go again on a better day.
