The Municipal Council of Lanzarote’s Centres for Art, Culture and Tourism (CACT) stand as the main tourist spot on the island. In January 2005, the Centres for Arts, Culture and Tourism began to be managed through a Local Public Business Entity (EPEL), belonging entirely to the Municipal Council of Lanzarote.
EPEL CACT, the Foreign Promotion Company of Lanzarote (SPEL) and the Domestic Tourism Office, are the three public bodies that manage tourism in Lanzarote.
While being fully public, it operates with a business philosophy, CACT is set up as the main economic engine of the island, dedicating its profits to finance the public policies of the islands through the payment of royalties to the Municipal Council of Lanzarote and Municipalities of Haria, Tinajo and Yaiza.
