La Geria

The “Geria”, a cone-shaped hollow excavated in natural layers of volcanic gravel several metres deep and in the center of which a vine is planted, a wall in the shape of a half moon is then built around the vine in order to protect it from the wind. Row after row of these perfect hollows which are tinted green, ochre and black result in a most unique landscape and it helps to justify why Lanzarote has been included in The Unesco World Network of Biosphere Reserves.
