At the north of Lanzarote, behind Famara Cliffs hides “Archipelago Chinijo” composed of La Graciosa Island, the small islands of Alegranza and Montaña Clara and the east and west Roques.
In the unavailable Cliffs of Famara and in this Archipelago survive more than 2000 species of animal and plants. All of this turns these spaces in the most important sea and land protected area of Canary Island. The waters of the Archipelago Chinijo have the biggest biodiversity of the Canary Island. In these waters we can find the best kind of sea ecosystem and the biggest diversity of species from sea plants and fish from the Canary Island.
It was the first place where lot of people like Roman, Phoenicians, Normans and Genoveses docked and rested in their trip around Canaries. However, the first settlement was in the 19th century and, traditionally, their unique sustenance was the use of natural resources. The different uses of these natural resources have led an invaluable cultural heritage.
La Graciosa is the perfect place to get away from it all: a small village where time seems to stop; heavenly beaches where reigns the silence and breath is calm; enjoy a trip to the small island of Alegranza or an immersion in the Archipelago waters. All will give you an experience you will never forget.
