The last project to be completed by Cesar Manrique was the Jardin de Cactus. The artist started working on this old quarry and windmill in the 70's although it wasn't actually opened until 1990. It's so much more than just a cactus garden, there's a lovely terrace with a bar restaurant overlooking the landscaping which has over 7,000 cacti planted.
There's a stunning view to be found at the Mirador del Río in the far North of Lanzarote. This centre features floor to ceiling windows and a viewing platform with telescopes looking over the Río below which seperates Lanzarote from La Graciosa.
