Owner description: Located 400 metres high, on the Risco de Famara, the Mirador del Río is one of César Manrique's most representative architectural creations as it shows a series of artistic and architectural details and his eagerness to combine art and nature. It is located near the remains of an ancient military base that dates back to the end of the 19th Century. It is camouflaged on the rock in a way in which only a genius of Manrique's magnitude could conceive.

“Fantastic views”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

Another place that has César Manrique's hand all over it. The views looking over the Graciosa are stunning.

Make use of the multi-buy ticket for several attractions as it will save you money. We made this our first visit and were glad that we bought it.

This spectacular viewpoint carved in the cliff edge was once an old artillery post-Bateria del Rio.The view of the Islas Graciciosas is unforgetable.

“Stunning views a must see when in Lanzarote”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

Visited Mirardor del Rio last week. Ok so you have to pay to go in, but the views are wonderful! The island of La Graciosa looks gorgeous and stunning scenery. We had lunch in here too, was only a sandwich and a drink but the staff serving were not very good, had to wait ages and kept forgetting what we had ordered, we had to ask about 3 times for an orange juice. There is also a gift shop located within the centre.

“Nice vieuws”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

Nice place to visit, book the entrance in a combination of the most important places to see on Lanzarote.
You will get a discount on the best must sees on the isle when you book a "bono" it is available on every big tourist attraction like this on, on the isle.

“A view spoiled by a tourist attraction”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

I’ve been here before this trip so didn’t go in but merely took in the view from the road. I’m an admirer of Manrique but did he really need to stop me seeing the view without paying? The building seems contrary to his ideals.
