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.

A bit of overkill to claim this as "Omar Sharif's house" (he owned it for 1 day before losing it in a card game!) but still worth a visit. Another one of Cesar Manrique's designs, really interesting to see the living areas as well as the outside space. The whole place looks a little tired, but you still get the... More

This is a little out of the way of the beach resorts but well worth hiring a car to discover the beauty and tranquility of the house that Omar Shariff lost in a card game. The views are spectacular and worth the climb to the top floor where you can look out of massive glass windows. This is another Cesar... More

Architecturally I normally favour the traditional, but this Caesar Manrique inspired house is inspirational - could have moved in straight away! Erroneously known as Omar Sharifs house, which no doubt brings many visitors, it stands on its owm merit, as a wonderful place to visit. Quirky design, incorporating the house into the lava cliff face. Loved the tunnel walkway which... More

Although this might not be the most famous place of interest on Lanzarote, we loved it!. We were pointed out at it by a flyer under the windshield whiper, while we were visiting the market in Teguise (also nice!). Just a quick drive from Teguise to Lagomar. Once inside, the house is much bigger than the outside suggests. There are... More

Omar Shariff's house, that he lost in a card game, is a fun place to explore. House full of nooks and crannys, with tunnels , water features, as well as his living area. Really enjoyed walking around all the little areas, most is accessible by steps, and there is plenty of them, so may not suit some people. 5 Euro... More

This is another home on the island commissioned by the amazing Cesar Manrique. It is build into the mountain and has lots of areas to see, which are accessible via steps up and down. It was easy to get lost! It is an interesting home with lots of little areas to chill out and take in the views. There is... More

I've always wondered what it would be like to tour the home of a celebrity and now I can say that I have, well sort of! I know Mr Sharif didn't actually get to move in there, but he did own it, albeit not for very long! What a wonderfully strange but beautiful home. I can see why people fell... More

We only got to visit really briefly as it was part of a organised tour. Would have liked to chill out and drink a glass of wine in the bar cut into rock. Didn't get to see it all. There was a wedding being set up at the time and imagine it might make a really unique wedding venue

If you want to experience a very unique house built into the side of a volcanic hillside, then you will not forget this place. It is a little tired in placed but it does not matter, you pay next to nothing to get in. The views from it's elevated position are great and the architecture as it weaves its way... More

Omar Sharif was to have been the owner of this house, but lost it playing bridge! Another Cesar Manrique gem - if you like his modernist architecture you'll love this house.
