Casa Museo and restaurant

Our next stop was the “La Casa Museo y el Monumento al Campesino” which are located in the middle of the island in a town called Mozaga.  Renting a car here is a great idea, the distances aren't far and you can see a lot of different places and a lot of beautiful countryside in a single day.  It's just important to get a decent map so that you don't go around in circles without getting anywhere!  I drove all over the island and the roads are extremely good.  Be careful for bikers - Lanzarote seems like a bikers paradise - there were people cycling all over the island on most all of the roads so you have to be careful when passing them.

The peasant monument sits above the road and is an impressive site, shining white with curved lines standing about 15 meters high.  The monument was built and designed by Cesar Manrique, a famous Spanish artist and architect who was from the island and whose name is closely associated with that of Lanzarote.  It is dedicated to and commemorates the ingenuity and work of the island’s peasants who were able to make a living from the arid land.
