  • It is impossible to understand the Lanzarote's idiosyncrasies without César Manrique. This Private Foundation shows a part of the intimate life of the architect-artist, the way he understood the unique and extraordinary way of life of Lanzarote. To sum it up, La Fundación César Manrique is a must in the island, simply, you cannot miss it.
  • Fascinating house built into a lava flow in Tahiche. Very worth the 8 euro entry. Bus journey from Puerto del Carmen took a long time but was worth it.
  • A wonderful place to visit. This house was designed by Cesar himself and his use of the natural elements of the island and his attention to detail make this an unmissable excursion when staying in Lanzarote.
  • Really nice and calm. Bring cash ;) it seems cash is more popular than cards in Lanzarote !
  • It's a very calm and welcoming place, lots of information about the artist & a beautiful place to visit, we've been 3 times over the last 7 years but have enjoyed every visit & learned something new each time
