Situated in the centre of the island, is where the Lanzarote’s airport is located. Despite the fact that its coast is less extensive than that of other municipalities, Playa Honda is home to one of Lanzarote’s largest residential developments.
MONUMENTO AL CAMPESINO (House-Museum of the Farmer and the Monument to Fertility)
In the geographical heart of Lanzarote, at an important crossroad from which any point of the island can be reached, stands one of the most important works by César Manrique, and the one most loaded with symbolic references: the architectural complex of the Casa-Museo del Campesino y Monumento a la Fecundidad (House-Museum of the Farmer and the Monument to Fertility).
Located in one of the island’s oldest wineries that forms part of a traditional Canary Island house, it offers a very complete overview of the goods and household items used by our ancestors, from the time of the majos, or indigenous islanders, up to the beginning of the 20th century. Here you can discover the utensils that formed part of the social, working and religious life of the people of Lanzarote, and explore the roots of a population capable of extracting green shoots of life from the volcanoes.
Its central location has made this one of the largest residential zones on the island. Its attractive seafront promenade, the beaches and the number of restaurants make Playa Honda a welcoming spot.
