Jameos del Agua

Jameos del Agua is a place on earth where nature and mankind decided to come together.

It was César Manrique who knew how to envision and transform what used to be debris of a volcanic tube with lava flowing from Volcán de la Corona, on the north of the island, into a unique place in the world. It was his privileged mind and hands full of life, the ones that gave shape to the rough black basalt, a place where peace and quiet, harmony and beauty prevail.

White, blue, green and black, those are the colours Manrique gave to his island. Those colours get mixed up along a path of outstanding and extraordinary beauty, encouraging the imagination and dreams. On every corner, from a fresh entrance covered by large green ferns where small birds sing, to an original Auditorium, unique in the world due to its geological and acoustic features, in Jameos del Agua, every detail is a constant suggestion to reflect on, look inwards and day dream.

Blind crabs (Munidopsis Polimorpha), an endemic local species, always moved by low and high tides. It is strictly forbidden to throw coins or other objects into the
interior lagoon. Help us protect crabs environment. It is absolutely forbidden to throw coins or other objects into the crabs lagoon.

The pristine water pool, and the never-ending Atlántida tunnel that goes deep into the Atlantic, help visitors enjoy a personal experience difficult to forget. Jameos del Agua is the first Art, Culture and Tourism Centre ever to be created by César Manrique, and for many, it is also a reflection of his aesthetic ideals: harmony between nature and art.
