Lovelock theory is the natural extension of general relativity to higher dimensions. It can be also thought of as a toy model for ghost-free higher curvature gravity. It admits a family of AdS vacua, most (but not all) of them supporting black holes, that display interesting features such as a generalized variant of the Hawking-Page phase transition. This provides an appealing arena to explore different holographic aspects in the context of the AdS/CFT correspondence which I will discuss in this talk.
