  • It was our first attraction we visited on Lanzarote and we were very impressed. Great way to live - the living room in different colours, built-in natural ventilation :-)). You get want to be even more creative. And so beautifully in the landscape and with an incredible creativity. The pictures, some very, very impressive, the Golden wave has addressed very me recommended, even if you would like to visit different places (with) has designed Cesar Manrique. I'm starting to like this style very

  • Great place to visit if in the area-I personally loved all the artwork in his home and the interesting way he built his house in the lava bubbles. Lovely to walk around and discuss-might not interest children as much as adults but I was intrigued. Not a place that I would spend all day in but worth an hour or two trip! Most of the problem was that there wasn't a lot of shade around when walking through the gardens so I got very hot whilst walking around. Great for pictures though and a fabulous walk!
  • Despite learning about Spanish artists in my A-Level, I had not heard of Cesar Manrique. His stamp is ALL OVER Lanzarote. His house is no exception. As an art piece, its a beautiful place, each room is different and stark white, contrasting with the volcanic rock and lush vegetation. Not sure how it worked as a comfortable place to live. Definitely a place to visit!
  • Quite popular with tourist coaches, hence can be busy, but easy to see why. A fascinating place, nice and cool underground, loads of artwork to admire. Shop and free wifi area.
  • A foundation for helping artists, set in the former home of Cesar Manrique (artist) which is beautiful. Some famous artists work are on show (Picasso). I liked the style of the house, set in lava bubbles.
  • You should see this. César manrique was An amazing Guy for Lanzarote. His Buildings and artwork are amazing.
