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.

Interesting house built into the hillside with lovely gardens. Lots of steps and passageways to explore. Small café on site. It's off the beaten track and there's not a lot of parking but well worth the effort.

This really is a gem. Amazing architecture, you can so imagine the parties. Children will love exploring the hidden rooms, although best for slightly older ones. Shame you can't take a dip in the swimming pool it's so beautiful.

Loved this place I think Manrique and Omar sharif would hate the awful resports of the east coast especially Costa teguise which is a total hell hole basically Blackpool with sun complete with fat white trash everywhere....this place is gorgeous and a real peaceful cool place to visit off season I wouldn't like to come here when it's busy but...

This house was part of a coach trip we were on and we were not aware of it before, so it was a pleasant surprise. Not just because of the Omar Sharif connection but it has outstanding views and built into a mountain. Well worth a visit. There is food and drink available, but as we were on a coach... More

Fascinating to see what sort of house can be created with imagination and money. Well sited, with a truly panoramic outlook. Wish I'd been the one to win the place from Omar!

Unusual garden and house full of little areas, some great views. Very interesting history with Omar Sharif's previous ownership.

I was amazed by this museum! It was interesting to visit knowing that Omar Shariff had lived there previously Loved the grounds and the late night bar in the caves - can imagine it's great at night There's a restaurant on the grounds too Liked this place

Lovely, scenic outing. The winding tunnels of Lagomar are well worth a visit, perfect for a slow paced day of exploring. Reasonably priced drinks at the bar make it the perfect location for unwinding after a day of exploring. A real hidden gem, signage could be better but local taxi drivers know the way.
