Mirador del Rìo VII

    Newer Older


    Mirador del Río is a viewpoint situated on an approximately 475 meters high escarpment called Batería del Río in the very north of the Canarian island of Lanzarote.

    The location was created in 1974 by the local artist César Manrique in his typical style, consisting of a balustraded cafe, a souvenir shop and a platform on its top which are integrated in the lava rock.

    Mirador der Río provides a stunning view over the strait of "Río" (naming the viewpoint) towards the archaic island of La Graciosa.

    From here guards watched for secretly landing ships in former times. Its interiors and balcony areas were used as a location for the BBC television programme Doctor Who's serial, Planet of Fire, representing an alien planet and culture.
