Museums and Art Galleries
Lanzarote offers several museums and art galleries, places to learn about the island’s culture.
Within the cultural range offered by the island of Lanzarote we should note the great concern shown by all its inhabitants for the creation of an environment closely linked with and enhancing all artistic manifestations
In this respect, the influence and hardworking nature of the people of Lanzarote have been decisive in promoting and creating the necessary incentive for the island’s cultural development, as is well reflected in the museums, centres and galleries which tastefully present the works of art of internationally prestigious artist, thus making Lanzarote one of the major cultural centres of the Canary Islands.
Within Lanzarote’s interest in culture we should stress its link with history and the past through a great historical-artistic heritage, with a long list of works and monuments, castles, convents, aristocratic and religious houses, and the heritage deriving from the exhibition presentation and collection of works of art housed in the island’s various museums and art galleries, which bring together various artistic styles and manifestations.
