Lanzarote

It is only a short ferry trip across the channel from Graciosa to the big island. The trip is well worth it. Half of Lanzarote is covered with vast fields of sharp lava and eery rock monuments. There are some 100 volcanoes and 5 huge calderas on the island, whose geography was rewritten during horrendous, extended eruptions there, in the 18th and 19th centuries.
