The Atlantis Tunnel or the Atlantida is one of the attractions in Lanzarote, Canary Islands. It is the world’s largest volcanic tunnel comprising of the Cueva de los Verdes and Jameos del Agua.  Tourists and students on their spring break or summer holiday could be seen visiting these volcanic sites to marvel at their beauty and the phenomenon of their creation.

Looking at this photos makes me want to book a last minute holiday for me and my family. Arggh I could really use a vacation!

Cueva de los Verdes is among the world’s longest volcanic tunnels measuring 15 meters wide and 15 meters tall. Early inhabitants of the island were known to seek shelter in this tunnel whenever pirates would attack. A tour inside the tunnel showcases the stalactites and rock formations created by lava flows. An auditorium that seats around 500 people can be found inside the cave. It has excellent acoustics which makes it great venues for concerts.

Jameos are volcanic caves with a collapsed roof that are common in the northern part of Lanzarote. Jameos del Agua is one of the island’s Centres of Art, Culture and Tourism. It features a natural lake where you can find the endemic species of blind albino crayfish, a restaurant which also serves as the Jameo’s entrance, and a huge auditorium that can seat up to 600 audiences.

It’s truly amazing how volcanic formations that were created violently by nature can be beautiful and inspiring to artists. And truly enchanting to tourists.
