Cueva de los Verdes Location: 29°10' N, 13°46' W Elevation:  46 m Cueva de los Verdes is a lava tube located in the island of Lanzarote in the Canary Islands (Spain). The cave is a protected area of the Canary Islands. The cave was created around 3,000 years ago from a volcanic eruption in La Corona. An enormous lava stream flowed over the Malpaís de la Corona. For a long time, the lava stream flowed which left the top part to become a cave. In about 20 spots, the cover of the cave collapsed and formed. Cueva de los Verdes is formed from parts of the volcanic soils and extends from 1 km to 6 kilometres of old lava streams, which are the second longest in the world. In earlier centuries, inhabitants throughout Lanzarote hid in this cave to protect themselves from pirates. Two kilometres, altogether seven kilometres of the cave system are developed. The cave walls are colorful. Parts of the cave are deep. Parts of the caves are covered with sea water. The cave is famous for its concert hall which is located near the entrance and the exit of the cave. There are seats in the concert hall, allowing up to 500 people in the concert hall at once.(Wikipedia) Lanzarote:  7. Febr. 2006 Photos: Rolf Cosar HOME
