Lanzarote is the easternmost of the autonomous Canary Island in the Atlantic Ocean, approximately 125 km off the African cost and far 1,000 km from its mother Country Spain. The island has a desert climate with just less than 20 days of rain in a year and a average daily temperature of 25°C/77°F. The fair population, the blue sky, wind, fish, sea and freedom give to me the sensation of the European California. The Volcano Timanfaya made the island black and the contrast with the white houses is incredible. The biodiversity is characterized by 17 endemic plant and Lanzarote is the only place in Europe where you could find vine pre-filossera grapes epidemic happened in all Europe in XIX century. So you could find vines with more than 200 years. The island has a UNESCO biosphere reserve protected site status.
