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.

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!

Called in here one Saturday in April. It was very quiet, so had the place to ourselves more or less. A quirky interesting place with the historic link to Omar Sharif who once owned it. Nice little Restaurant attached where we had a great light lunch. Nice to wander around the main house and sit in the many shady areas... More

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

This was a truly exciting visit to think that Omar Sharife lost this iamazing villa in a card game begs belief. Worth the tip and entry fee.

A good reasonably quick stop if headed from costa teguise to teguise. Not a top destination but worth a 45 min stop if you're passing by

We didn't know what to expect as we arrived and almost didn't go. I am totally glad we did! What an amazing home, built in to the side of a hill using all the curves and spaces brilliantly. Within 3 minutes I wanted to live there!! Visiting Lanzarote again this year and will definitely go back. A nice little cafe... More
