The Monumento al Campesino is located in the geographic centre of the island in the municipality of San Bartolomé, and it is a public tribute César Manrique paid to the effort of men and women working the fields, and facing the worst conditions in order to be able to bring the land to life. Wine and food products from Lanzarote are nowadays internationally renowned thanks to the effort Manrique made when paying this tribute. The Museo del Campesino complex, is a visual and emotional display, that pays special attention to the wit, courage, bravery of local farmers. It consists of a series of buildings that look like traditional homes, with white walls and green wood, combining the most characteristic elements of the different areas of the island. The Museo is guarded by the majestic Monumento a la Fecundidad: a fifteen-metre tall sculpture created by Manrique using boat water tanks, and iron and cement objects assembled.

This is a good photo stop as it has an amazing monument to commemorate farmers. It also has a nice little tapas bar and some workshops where you can watch locals practising skills from many years ago
