Architectural heritage

      The architecture of Lanzarote has been particularly influenced by Spain and is characterised by Hispano-Arabic traditions which integrate Mudejar, Andalusian, Galician and Castilian influences. However, the architectural features of Lanzarote have also been enriched by elements introduced by settlers and travellers from other European countries.

      This combination of cultures was the characteristic feature of the colonial style that originated in Latin America and in the development of which the Canary Islands, as a bridge between the continents, were involved. As a result many similarities can be perceived in the architecture of regions which are widely different and widely separated from one another, such as Andalusia, the Canary Islands, Madeira, Cuba, Santo Domingo, Colombia and Peru.

      At Seaside Los Jameos Playa in Lanzarote you will discover these cultural influences in the hotel's typical Canary Islands architecture, furnishing and decoration.
