Lanzarote is pure geology, seascapes and lunar landscape, crystalline waters, desert areas and oases with palm trees. It represents man living in harmony with nature. It is a land of contrasts.
The motor of the economy
Tourism and related services make up the economic base of the island. Both sectors account for about 80% of the island´s revenue.
The islanders know how to welcome visitors, who on their return spread the magical image of the island.
Art, Culture and Tourism
Worth particular mention are the network of centres of Art, Culture and Tourism. These centres were originally set up to highlight the island´s treasures.They are public and symbolise the care taken over many years by the islanders to protect their environment. Each centre varies greatly from another, but together they give an overall picture of Lanzarote´s landscape. They unite art with nature focusing on the most valuable aspects of the volcanic action and human activity, highlighting the unique features of the local culture.
The importance and uniqueness of the island has been recognised by the United Nations when it declared the island an Island Biosphere Reserve in 1993, stressing that the network of Centres reinforce the island´s culture and make an inestimable contribution to the preservation of Lanzarote´s the natural heritage.
