1. PALMERAL DE HARÍA, LANZAROTE
Enjoy the unique landscape of the island in the valley of thousand palm trees: In Haría you will find beautiful palm groves, located between the typical white houses with green doors and little orchards. It is one of the most fertile areas of the island, where potatoes, legumes, cereals and vegetables are grown. There have been counted more than 10.000 palm trees and here you will find many specimens from the endemic species Phoenix canariensis, a beautiful palm tree species that can only be found on the Canary Islands. A trip to Haría can be combined with a visit to the famous Cueva de los Verdes (a volcanic tube, where the inhabitants of the island hid from pirates) and Jameos del Agua, an architectural masterpiece designed by César Manrique, the "Picasso of the Canary Islands". Or you can drive further to the north and enjoy the most spectacular views from Mirador del Río, a stunning viewpoint, also designed by Manrique.
