Update: Jameos del Agua

Being in a hurry is not a good thing. That’s why I forgot to post the short movie that I made at the entrance in Jameos del Agua. Well, every mistake can be fixed, isn’t it ?

Jameos del Agua

We continue our journey in the North of Lanzarote, with Jameos del Agua caves, another result of the amazing volcanic nature of the island, at the foot of Monte de la Corona, volcano that didn’t erupted since 3000 years. When this volcano erupted, it formed one of the most interesting systems of caves and tubes in the world. Jameos del Agua is part of the The Green Caves (which is part of the Atlantida underground system), a lava tunnel which is over 6 km long with an additional 1.6 km under the sea and is one of the longest Volcanic Tunnels in the World (the underwater section has not been fully explored), although only about 2 km are open to the public, between Cueva de los Verdes and Jameos del Agua. These two entrances in the galleries are also the result of Manrique’s work. Under his quote, please enjoy the pictures:
