Special attractions ?

Asked by: 15th March 2011

I’ve been to Lanzarote over 20 times and like to do/see things regular tourists will never do. A.o. I’ve been to the Aljandro Sanz concert, several UD Lanzarote games, a classical concert in the Cueva de los Verdes and been inside the watercave near Famara.

Anybody any suggestions?

    The LBA are holding a charity event on the 30th April if you are here. It is a concert called Lanzarote Rocks and will be held in the Plaza de las Naciones, Los Pocillos, Puerto del Carmen from 3pm unitl 1am. There will be a wide variety of singers, musicians and bands performing on that day, with a Lady Gaga and Katy Perry tribute act coming from the UK as well.

    There are 5 charities that we are raising money for: Caritas, Calor y Cafe, AFOL and Tinguafaya are confirmed so far. They are all local charities, so any money raised will stay on the island to help people on the island.

    If you will be in Lanzarote, why not come on down!

      Rock is def. my kind of music! Unfortunately I’m following a course that will keep me buzy until June. Perhaps I’ll go in June, or else in September.

    Have you been to the picnic area on top of the Mirador de Haría overlooking Famara? It’s called the Bosquecillo, there are built in bbq’s, picnic tables and a children’s play area. It’s well off the beaten track but easy to find if you know where to look!

      I will put this one on my list!
      Besides the mentioned activities above, I also did the Romería to Mancha Blanca (from San Bartolome).
      Another thing I plan to do is finding CM grave and pay my respect.

      I have googled the walk you mentioned called Bosquecillo, and founds lots of interesting information and photo’s. The views look fantastic and it appears to be a suitable walk for all ages, a definite must do for my 2 weeks in April! Thank you for mentioning it.

        I did the walk in September, in honour of the Nuestra Señora de los Volcanes (patron saint of Lanzarote, a.k.a. Virgin de Los Dolores; Eng.: Our Lady of Sorrows); in (partially) traditional clothing. The offering of gifts / procession in Mancha Blanca is impressive, the party afterwards is enormous (and that is a huge understatement!)
        The actual day, Sept. the 15th, is a Fiesta Insular: several businesses all over the island will be closed! The pilgrimmage is held on the saturday nearest or before the 15th: this year: 11th?

    The grave is in the cemetery in Haria, take the path around on the left past the wall and its on the floor on the right hand side towards the back. His house in Haria is easy to find too, take the road at the side of the library and Ayuntamiento, where the footpaths are signed, look for the iron gate with sculpted palm trees, you can walk along the front of it and then go up and past the sports stadium and walk back down this road where you can see the back. As you can imagine there are lots of palm trees in the garden which helps to identify it.
