Lanzarote is one of the Canary islands. Its famous because its a vulcanic island. Very special to see how nature developped after the eruptions in 1730-1736 and in 1824. During these eruptions 11 villages were covered in lava. Because the lava covers the island its very hard for vegetation because it lacks water. You only see a lot of cactusses, palmtrees and some other plants but the only agriculture excists of some corn..
