La Graciosa, The Chinijo Archipelago

La Graciosa, The Chinijo Archipelago

The "Chinijo Archipelago" is made up of a group of islets known as La Graciosa, Alegranza and Montaña Clara, together with the East and West Roques.


In 1986, Chinijo Archipelago was declared a Natural Park. It is located on the northern side of the island of Lanzarote and includes the Chinijo Archipelago, as well as the sea between the islets and the northern coast of Lanzarote. Its geology is extremely beautiful and its biology includes a number of threatened and protected species—some are exclusive to the park. Both flora and fauna have an excellent state of preservation. For birds, these islets make up a unique habitat, which, based on its characteristics, is highly representative. There are several points where prehistoric bird eggs have been found, which provides additional scientific value.
