The volcanic features of Lanzarote's Los Volcanes Natural Park create an almost alien atmosphere, and the island's vineyards certainly add to this effect.

These bizarre fields are instant head-turners. The indigenous people invented this method for growing grapes in the dark volcanic ash. Housing one vine each, the holes are filled with soul and protected with half-circles of stones. Although unconventional, this area produces some of the best wines of Lanzarote.

Volcanic eruptions from this area in the 18th century shaped Lanzarote's modern landscape.
