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.

This is a very unusual house. It is not a museum as we know it. There are no exhibits, just an amazing home to explore. It was briefly owned by Omar Sheriff who then lost it in a card game! It is built into the side of a hill with passages and tunnels to explore. If you hire a car... More

Spent a couple of hours walking around this amazing hilltop museum. Lots to see and some great photo opportunities. The Omar Sharif connection is interesting. Lovely cafe - can recommend the iced coffee! Really worth a visit and tends to be quieter than some of the better known tourist spots as a little of the beaten track. Not well signposted... More

We visited Omar Sharif's villa and were so impressed. Another hidden gem built in to the volcanic landscape with a wonderfully glamorous back story! We especially loved the stepping stone pathway over bubbling water through a tunnel in the middle of the property! Gorgeous views and photo opportunities at every turn, and only 5 € entry. The bar was lovely... More

Lovely inside but very tricky to walk down the steps if children go please hang on to your parents. Also once you pass the lovely clear lake up stairs there info how volcanos erupt. And outside there a little café were you can have a drink. Enjoy.

An interesting trip to the house once owned by Omar Shariff if only for a short time. Lots of rooms set in the caves, linked by tunnels and lovely views of surrounding countryside.There are however lots of steps.

This house has to be my dream house. The architecture is mind-blowing and it's so beautiful. You're led into the first open area where there's a pool with fountains, you walk round with the back drop of a cliff face where steps and rooms have been built into it. Smooth whitewashed walls with tunnels and pathways leading off to rooms... More

It looks really impressive in the pictures, it's not quite as impressive in real life, but definitely worth the 5 euro entrance fee. It's a good way to spent half an hour. The tunnels are hobbit sized, my 6 foot 3 inch husband could not stand up straight in them, and from the outside they resemble an enlarged version of... More

A very interesting place. Got more than we expected. It is a truly exceptional house with some magical architecture. The Story behind it is also amazing. Well worth the €5 entrance fee.
