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

Interesting walk through lava tunnels, tour in English and Spanish, walk of about a kilometre, fairly easy but some steps and crouching necessary.

We hired a car and love going to see caves. This one was fantastic, good tour guide and beautiful inside. Enjoyed every minute of our trip.

Entrance is €9.50 per adult and they are interesting, but not exceptional, caves. The emphasis is on illumination of rocks and a couple of gimmicks and, in my opinion, not sufficiently focused on the lava tube. Our guide was absolutely atrocious and appeared to have...More

Incredible caves with stunning views. Very busy with tourists and the background music does not add anything to the experience. Still worth a visit.

Cueva de los verders is worth to pay a visit when you are on Lanzarote. The guided tour is recommended while the guide is telling the history and origine of the cave. The length of the tour is comfortable. And it had some nice views...More

Booked via a tour company. Cost 40 euros for 2 adults that included entry and bus from puerto del carmen. Took ages on the bus maybe 1hr 45. Tour was a hour. Lots of steps and low tunnel. Interesting. Worth a visit.
