Artist's Description

The beautiful blue caves on the Spanish island of Lanzarote.
Jameos del Agua is the number one tourist centre on the island. It was built by Jesus Soto and Luis Morales in 1968 from an idea by Cesar Manrique, and completed in 1987 with the construction of the auditorium.
Los Jameos del Agua was formed by the lava flow from the eruption of the volcano, La Corona, which advanced while the surface solidified. Due to the action of the gas trapped beneath the surface, part of the surface collapsed.
The entrance is the so-called ‘jameo chico’. It has been turned into a bar-restaurant, access to which is gained by a stone stairway. It communicates with the ‘jameo grande’ by a pathway of 100 metres in length and 13 metres wide that crosses the small lake that is home to the ‘jameito’, tiny blind albino crabs that are unique to Lanzarote.
The ‘jameo grande’ has been turned into a beautiful garden of tropical plants species centred around a vibrant, turquoise-coloured pool. At the end of this ‘jameo’, an auditorium of 600 seats has been built which possesses excellent acoustics. It is the venue for concerts and spectacles like the prestigious Festival of Visual Music of Lanzarote.
