Lanzarote is a volcanic island off the coast of West Africa and the north-eastern most of the seven Canary Islands. The Canary Islands are among the most attractive and charming regions of Europe.
It is a small island with a width of about 34km, a length of 70km and approximately 140,000 inhabitants. Lanzarote is one of the most culturally diverse of the Canary Islands, where Spanish is officially spoken.
The island is the only one of the Canary Islands designed and shaped by the artist and architect Cesar Manrique. Thanks to him, this unique architectural style of white, cubic houses with green windows has survived to this day.
