Owner description: There aren’t many places that gather as many areas of interest for the cultural and natural heritage of Lanzarote as Cueva de los Verdes, a unique mythological-looking cave, full of legends and extraordinary landscape and beauty. It came about after the eruption of the Volcán de la Corona, and it’s one of the most impressive hidden wonders in the depths of Lanzarote. It was used as a hideout by the locals who needed shelter to protect themselves from invasions and attacks of pirates coming from the north of Africa during the 16th and 17th Centuries. In the 19th Century, it became a must for travellers, experts and European scientists due to the uniqueness of this volcanic territory, named after a family that kept their cattle in the area, the story goes

Unfortunately this seemed expensive for what it was and not that interesting. Children were bored and have to say I was too!

Well it could have been if you had gone deep enough. This is a 45 min trip that is well worth the effort and ducking through tunnels. (keep your head down when told, it hurts if you don't). Do also wear sensible footwear.
