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.

Situated at the north of the island, only a couple of possible routes to get here (google maps does fine). It wasn’t too busy when we arrived yet the 20 or so car parking spaces were already taken and there were already quite a lot...More

We thought that the entrance fee was too much so went just down the road where there were spectacular views. After a few hundred metres you can even walk right to the edge for a fantistic view of La Graciosa

We visited as part of a trip that included the entrance fee. Although the architecture is stunning the views are almost as spectacular from the car park as the rooftop so probably not worth paying the entrance fee, Definitely worth stopping in this area to...More

We were surprised by a €4.75 pp entrance charge and walked down the road to have stunning views of the archipelago. I’m not sure what the entrance charge is for

The view is great, both from the restaurant inside and from the outside viewpoints. We didn't have food here so I do not know how the quality and prices are. Adults pay 4,5€ to enter. As you're leaving Mirador del Rio I highly recommend to...More

On arrival a small doorway greets you, this opens up to one of the most beautiful views in Lanzarote. Beautiful, mysterious place with amazing specctacular views over the bay. Not to be missed.

Great place for a coffee whilst looking out over La Craciosa Island. You can see the views from the road but the experience of Manriques building is worth the cash.

A bit of a trek from Playa Blanca but what a view. A shame you have to pay to look at a natural site but hey ho.

Situated more than 1500 feet above sea level on the grounds of an ancient military base that dates back to the late 1800’s. It combines creative architecture with natural rock formations. The views are amazing and not to be believed unless you see them yourself...More
