Hike: Lanzarote – The people born from the ashes arose

December 5 @ 09:30

MCLHikeAshes
Guide: José de León Hernández

Difficulty: Medium
Time: 4 hours
Language: Spanish
Limited Places

José de León, an archaeologist and doctor in History, will be the guide on this walk through some of the areas that came into being following the volcanic eruptions in Lanzarote in the eighteenth century.

We will see proof of the inventiveness of humans in adapting to devastating eruptions and surviving once the volcanoes returned to calm.

The imperative to survive meant that they were able to bring fruit from the ashes, to build shelters in the lava, to cross an ocean of rocks to reach the sea, to discover life between the cracks and islotitos, small plots of fertile ground.

We will realize how a people was forged, capable even of changing its religious imagery for a newly arrived Madonna.

We will not just see a transformed territory but shall also sense the vital beat of those new lives.

Booking form: here.
