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.

If you are on Lanzarote this is a "must see" -- the view is breathtaking. Even better if you're biker and go there on a bike. Be careful though, with Lanzarote's northern winds, and many hills on the way it will not be the easiest...More

Visited as part of the cultural tour. This is one of César Manrique's best installations. Inside it has a fairytale feel. The views are wonderful, inside and outside. The cafe is basic but good.

After the volcanoes and caves, this is a must. There is a modest fee for entry but the view is breathtaking. From a small cafe (with a reasonable range of light bites) or from the viewing platform, the view across a sea channel to the...More

If you like seaside and cliffs, you have to go there. We like vulcanic environment and this is a great opportunity to see what you need.

Worth one visit to get spectacular views if want to pay for it. But can see same view on road outside, just here is extra care and gift shop with info about area and Isle of La Graciosa. Would only go the once.

Stunning place to look out over the views. brilliant scenery above the clouds on some days. Can be very windy so heed the signs about not going to the edge of the cliff
