Lanzarote is the ideal place for a truly relaxing holiday with its beautiful beaches, gorgeous natural parks, stunning volcanoes, fascinating caves and lovely gardens. The island was first inhabited by the Berbers. At that time, the population depended on agriculture and fishing for their livelihood. Today, Lanzarote counts tourism as one of its vital industries in addition to fishing. With the help of influential environmentalist and architect, César Manrique, planning and design of the city were attuned to keeping the aesthetic beauty of the island without filling the skyline with high-rise buildings and preserve its unique geology.
