The Volcanographist


Looking down through the ‘roof ‘ of a Lanzarote lava bubble transformed by the artistic vision of landscape architect, Cesar Manrique,  into a black-walled, luxuriant  green and white lagoon……
Manrique used the tunnels from Lanzarote’s central volcano to their sea outlets to create subterranean wonderlands  (a ‘house’ for himself, a Concert Hall elsewhere…) that on their own are worth a visit to Lanzarote.
It is hard not to share his affection for this strange, barren yet beautiful,  island.
