Expert review of Islote de Hilario
Lanzarote's main 'Fire Mountain' is part of the island's dramatic, volcanic landscape, a sleeping giant that last erupted in 1730, but is still active. At the summit is El Diablo (The Devil) restaurant, where steaks are cooked up on the heat of the volcano, and outside national park workers throw brushwood or buckets of water into a deep well in order to prompt it to emit flames or steam. Don't miss the bus tour (included in the entry fee) which takes visitors on a snaking journey up close to rock formations tortured by the heat, accompanied by classical music that reaches a thundering climax at the end.
8 euros (4 euros for children aged between 7 and 12).
