Day 3, Wednesday.
We arrived at El Golfo. The previous volcanic eruption led to the setting of a beautiful landscape of rocks, a stormy ocean and a green lake. Here, peridot is extracted from solidified magma.

6-lanzarote-elgolfo-loshervideros.jpgHere you can buy goods made from peridot.

13-lanzarote-elgolfo-loshervideros.jpgThe ocean and the views make it hard to leave. 
14-lanzarote-elgolfo-loshervideros.jpgHere you can buy souvenirs such as black volcanic stones with green peridot dots (on the top right).

After El Golfo, we went to Los Hervideros. This is where lava was thrown during the last volcanic eruption. The upper layer cooled faster than the bottom layers, causing caves and wells to form from the solidified lava.
