22/08/2012 Lanzarote (BG) - Timanfaya National Park in Lanzarote was the third most visited national park in Spain last year. It is part of a group of 14 natural protected areas across Spain.


In 2011, Timanfaya received in excess of 1.5 million visitors to the park, about 114,000 more than in 2010 and up to 177,000 more than in 2009. 2009 recorded the lowest number of tourist visits since the 1990’s.


Although the influx of visitors to the National Park recovered in 2011, the numbers are still a far cry from those recorded in previous years when more than 1.8 million tourists used visit the protected area.


Out of all 14 protected National Parks ‘El Teide’, in Tenerife, recorded the most visitors last year as 2.7 million people visited, followed by ‘Picos de Europa’ in Asturias ,Cantabria y Castilla y León, with 1.7 million visitors.


Although in recent years Timanfaya has regularly found itself the third most popular of the National Parks, in 2001 and 2002 it even managed to leapfrog ‘Picos de Europa’ in terms of visitor numbers.
