The museum is the former home of Cesar Manrique and certainly shows off his vision for tranforming the landscape into a place to live and work. more »

Inspiring and beautiful home, now museum, of Cesar Manrique built in and around underground larva "bubbles'. His love for the natural world and ability to envision amazing building design, using, but not exploiting the incredible volcanic landscape of his island shines through. Definitely worth a visit. And there's an interesting collection of his work as well as by Picasso, Joan Miro and others.
Amazing place. Great perspective into the life of a local artist with an international projection. The architecture, the landscape, the plants, complement his work and vice versa. There is an audio guide that can be downloaded for free from Android or OS store. It allows to know more about César Manrique, even though most people just seemed to prefer to ignore it and go through this fabulous place at what seemed close to the speed of light. In a way it meant the space was mostly empty which was great.
Beautiful house with innovative concepts used at volcanic land. Entry fees is really overpriced, it feels like you are in a rich person house, that's why I rated 2 stars here. Nice for taking photos.
Amazing place. A lot to learn and enjoy the work of Cesar Manrique. Absolutely recommended! This is a must.
The vibe is excellent and it's not too dear. I don't quite appreciate his later art, but the whole place is very groovy.
