La Cueva de los Verdes  

The impressive La Cueva de los Verdes (Green Caves), named after a family with the surname Verde, not the colour green, are part of an underground cave system formed about 3000 years ago during the eruptions of the Corona Volcano (in the north of Lanzarote).

Overall, the tunnel is almost 8 kilometers long, one of the longest volcanic tunnels in the world, extending under the sea. Around 2 km are open to the public, via a guided tour in English

The cave measures more than 15 meters wide and 15 m high.

The caves have been artificially lit and provide a colourful spectacle, viewed on a conducted tour basis.

Part of the cave is used occasionally as a concert hall. It reputedly has excellent acoustics and is an impressive sight, as is the optical illusion, which the guide will show you. It is a secret that you are not supposed to reveal!

La Cueva de los Verdes is situated to the north west of the LZ-1 north of Punta Mujeres and is signposted same junction as Jameos del Agua.
