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.

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.

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

Hard to believe that 2 people would buy such a great house and then open it to the public rather than live there themselves! Well done them! A lovely place to visit. A gorgeous house set into the rock; pool, bar, balconies, trees, flowers and private living quarters...simply a special place. Loads of steps so you have to be able... More

The story goes that Omar Sharif bought the house and gambled it away the next day and never returned. To be honest, you would have to be extremely fit and sure on your feet to live here because the home is created from caves hewn into the rock, so the walls, floors and ceilings are rock, with sometimes quite steep...

Formerly Omar Shariff"s house, designed by Cesar Manrique, partly built into the rock, with passages, hidden rooms, pools, gardens, and the card room where legend has it that Shariff lost the deeds to the house in a game of cards. Restaurant during the evening (we didn't try that), small bar with drinks and very little else during the day. A... More

The publicity can be confusing: is it a museum, another Manrique attraction, a restaurant, an art gallery, a garden, or Omar Sharif's luxury villa, lost at cards? In truth it's a bit of all of them. The Sharif connection makes for a good story, believe it if you like, but the house, a modest idiosyncratic building on top of the... More
