Mirador del Rio, Lanzarote

The Mirador del Rio provides spectacular views of the Chinijo Archipelago, which consists of La Graciosa, Montana Clara and Alegranza as well as the islets of Roque del Este and Roque del Oeste.

The early inhabitants of the island used this site as a Lookout point as Lanzarote was often attacked by pirates. In 1898 the 'Bateria del Rio' was built as an Artillery base where the Canons now resting at the Castillo de San Gabriel once resided.

In 1973 Cesar Manrique turned the Bateria del Rio into a restaurant and Tourist Centre.
