05 May Los Jameos Del Agua – Punta De Mujeres, Spain
Los Jameos Del Agua on Lanzarote found a champion in locally born architect, César Manrique.
Manrique was a dedicated protector and champion of the unique geology of the island and lobbied successfully for strict building regulations to protect it from those horrible high rises that blight so many warm weather destinations in Europe.
Consequently, the vast majority of buildings on the island are tasteful low-slung whitewashed structures which create a great contrast with the surrounding environment. That along with a famous Grand Canaria #architect Fernando Navarro, who built this three story family home in the centre of Las Palmas in the 1800s.
