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.

...think James Bond or Jason Borne! Its an amazing place, the views inside and out are stunning and there are loads of little areas to explore. Probably my favourite place on the Island (Omar Sheriff having owned it for a day is a bit over-egged- but adds to the allure!)

This was one of our stops on a car tour of the island and well worth the visit.. The former house of Omar Sharif (he only owned it for a day!) its a quirky home and garden built into the rock. Lots of nooks and crannies to wander around and a nice little bar area overlooking the pool. We visited... More

Beautiful home of Omar Sharif - although he only owned it for one day, before losing it in a card game! Lots of steep steps, and tunnels, but totally worth a visit. Dramatic scenery, lots of photo opportunities. Cost us 5€ each entry.

Found this by chance on way to a visit to town of Teguise - about 5 minutes down hillside - on road to Costa Teguise. Originally home of Omar Sharif - really enjoyed unique design of house and grounds - rooms cut into volcanic rock - a must see location. Views are fabulous looking back over coast. NB Not a... More

Hidden away a little in Nazaret, built in to the side of the mountain, this museum/house is unique. Well laid out, creative offering great views with a touch of contempoary art worth the visit with a cafe bar/restaurant overlooking the pool and gardens. It's worth the visit, different but hard to be disappointed by the nooks and crannies this house... More

Would highly recommend it, what a beautiful place! something out of fairy tail, and €5 entrance fee is more than reasonable. The art gallery is being refurbished at the moment, but the rest of the place is well maintained. The café is lovely, albeit not the cheapest.

The house was stunning, there are lots of steps and lovely views....an interesting story behind how he owned the house for one day and lost it over a game of cards....I wouldn't want to live in the house...good for entertaining though...overall an interesting visit....I would recommend it!

The history of Lagomar tied in with Omar Sharif is quite a story. It is a bit of a hidden gem and although visited it several times never seems busy. An oasis of quiet by the pool, sitting drinking a coffee in the shade with the fountains trickling, take a book and sit there all day!

If you want to see some nice houses on Lanzarote then go to any of those associated with Cesar Manrique. Lagomar is not in the same class. I can't comment on the bar, restaurant which may be very good... We only visited the house during the day.

We stayed very close by to LagOmar and wasn't planning on visiting as we heard it was a museum and generally don't find museums interesting. On our last day we decided to wander up to it and have a look. Grumpy husband didn't want to go in cos there was a fee and it was a 'museum' so I went... More
