Lanzarote Atlantic Museum: Go down into the depths of the marinas to see up close Jason deCaires Taylor’s sculptures in the first underwater contemporary art museum in Europe
* Dive amongst impressive sculptures
* A wonderful open door to the ocean for divers
* Art and nature unite in the first underwater museum in Europe, situated 14 metres below the surface.
Dive into the depths of Lanzarote’s waters and visit the Atlantic Museum, a spectacular artificial reef made up of a collection of sculptures that create a strong visual dialogue between art and nature. Located on the Lanzarote coast and at 14 metres deeps, this museum project occupies 50 by 50 metres of seabed and boasts over 300 sculptures displaying various scenarios.
Admire the “Human Swirl”, 200 figurative pieces placed in a circular shape; “The Portal”, that reflects the ocean surface or “The Hybrid Garden” among other compositions. All the pieces are made out of pH neutral materials and are designed to adapt to the sea life endemic. So much so that they are already frequented by sharks, batteries of barracudas and sardines, octopuses, sea sponges and sting rays.
