Attraction details
Type: Museums
Owner description: Magnificent home and gardens open to public (museum,bar and restaurant). Built for Omar Sharif by Jesus Soto and influenced by Cesar Manrique (responsible for almost every architectural tourist attraction on Lanzarote). One of Lanzarote's top 10 I reckon.

We enjoyed about two hours visiting Omar Sharif's Casa & Museum in Nazaret. Not knowing until we read a note in his living room that he only owned the place for 1 DAY. He played Bridge against a Champion and lost the game and his villa!! Silly boy! Otherwise a perfect place to retire with private swimming pool and bar... More

My daughter saw this as she has an interest in Architecture and I am glad we came. A unique place and fun to explore the rooms and tunnels. Worth a look on a tour of the island. However the receptionist could have at least stopped her call on her mobile when we paid to get in. Very rude

Saw this on a tour. Wish we had longer than the half an hour as climbing the steps takes time in a big group. Great design but I would not want to live there. I am not surprised Omar Sheriff was willing to gamble it away. I am glad to have seen it. No good if you have mobility problems... More

Lagomar Museum was the home of Omar Shariff. Being a worldchampion bridgeplayer he played a game where he put his home as playmoney. Unfortunately he lost the game and his home. He left and never returned. It is a beautiful house built against and partly in the volcanic rock with numerous litte corners and surprising views. The house is located... More

Great place to visit and have a coffee. Only go if you can manage lots of stairs. Totally impractical as a house, but fabulous design and picturesque.

Visited this museum at the end of January 2015. It's a little difficult to find but we got instructions from a helpful pharmacy in Nazareth. It was reasonably priced to enter, about 5 or 6 euros each. The views are stunning looking all the way across to the sea one side and the mountains the other. Whilst very interesting in... More

This the house once owned by the actor which he lost in a bridge card game. He only lived in the house for 6 days An amazing almost retro house on 3 levels with extensive views across the Northern Lanzarote countryside. There are various viewing terraces, and a walkway in what can only be described as a well lit cavern... More

You have to be very agile to enjoy this museum safely. There are many steep white shiny painted steps, as the house is built into the walls of an ancient quarry. There are some handrails to hang on to, but they are often low, not continuous or missing. The Health and Safety fanatics would have a field day! It's worth... More

We have been spoilt by the houses operated by the Manrique Foundation. Whilst Lagomar is potentially even more exciting, it is let down by its generally shabbiness.

This house is well worth going to. It is in Nazeret . You could sit for hours enjoying the feel of the place. There are many steep steps so if you not good on your feet don't go. Lots of passages to wander along and a bedroom straight out of the Arabian Nights. There is also a sweet little dog... More
