Jameos del Agua, Lanzarote, Canary Islands

The basics

Built in 1968, Manrique’s creative vision centers around a series of collapsed lava tubes, or Jameos, where pressure build-up had caused the roofs to fall in, making an atmospheric location for an open-top swimming pool. Additional highlights include a series of underground galleries devoted to the island’s volcanic history, a concert hall that makes use of the natural cave acoustics, and an underground lake, famous for its endemic population of blind Albino Crab (a species found only on Lanzarote).

Many full-day tours of the island (particularly its northern portion) include entrance into the caves. Admission grants visitors access to the entire complex, though food and drinks from the restaurant or club are not typically included.
