It seems Cesar Manrique has left his creative mark on the entire island of Lanzarote. Thus, El Mirador del Rio too has required the contribution of this Canarian artist who had to turn into a tourist objective the former look-out point (Bateria del Rio) used by locals to defend against pirate attacks. El Mirador del Rio is not a museum proper, but its tourist relevance lies somewhere between the artistic touch of Manrique and its ability to open extraordinary panoramic views of the Chinijo Archipelago and of Las Salinas del Rio.

Eduardo Caceres and Jesus Soto too have contributed to the conception and construction of this edifice. However, El Mirador del Rio is an exquisite substantiation of a tradition, so typical of Lanzarote, of blending into the same picture the respect for nature and the contribution of the work of man to enhancing the huge nature potential of the island.
