Here, we were on the observation deck of the 

Mirador del Rio

The population is 300,000. There are no hotels and none are planned to be built either. Visitors just arrive, walk around and then leave. Citizens prefer to keep tourists away from the island:

14-lanzarote-mirador-dinner.jpgWe made our way to the very top of the mountain for dinner:

16-lanzarote-mirador-dinner.jpgThere is an observation deck at the top of the hill but the wind was too cold and strong; we couldn't stay there for very long. 
17-lanzarote-mirador-dinner.jpgThere are only a few buildings at the top, including a restaurant and souvenir shop.

20-lanzarote-mirador-dinner.jpgOn our way back we passed the first capital of the island, Teguise.
21-lanzarote-mirador-dinner.jpgWe then made our way toward our next stop, the 

House of Caesar Manrique

. On our way we saw several unusual sculptures:
