The Cabildo of Lanzarote have added three archaeological routes to the Red de Senderos on the island.
Tourists and residents are encouraged to discover these three new routes which include the archaeological heritage sites of Los Pozos de San Marcial, Zonzamas & Montaña Blanca. The island council intend to co-ordinate visits from the education centres so that the younger generation can learn about the historical and cultural heritage of Lanzarote.
