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 sprawling, man-made habitation worth having a wonder around and a great photo opportunity. It is perched into a rock face with many little alcoves to explore. Do go and see it, it is very unique architecturally. Our kids enjoyed roaming around and we enjoyed the fact that a hollywood legend once owned the place.

We went to this house as it was recommended by a friend. While the design, layout and expanse of the house was incredible, and it was a really beautiful to experience, we were just shocked by the sheer amount of stairs involved with no warning! It's well worth a visit though, especially for the cheap entry fee, however if you... More

Very interesting and well worth the 5 euros to get in. Intriguing house, left almost it was. It was good to imagine if we actually lived there. Clean, and lots to see. Real shame Omar lost it in a bet! In Nazaret, Look for signs (not the brown tourist ones) as they are easy to miss.

The gardens are nice for a look around and we got some interesting pictures, I wouldn't class it as a museum though as there isn't much to see at all.

Not busy, not too popular, only due to ignorance. Visiting the house is truly interesting. A wonderful mixture of natural rock, housing, green life, history and food. The visit will last about 1 hour, unless you decide staying for a drink or food. You also have the option of buying a ticket with a drink (for only 2 more euros... More

Visited here 23rd June and was not disappointed. It's reasonably priced for a two hour trip we had there. The views as you go higher and higher up lagomar are truly breathtaking. The shaded areas were very welcome away from the 30 degree sun. I can only imagine what a luxury it would be to live in the house. Very... More

worth a visit on a hillside with great views of the surrounding coastline, there was a cool wind blowing so was a relief from the heat. it's a wonder how this house was carved from the hillside a wonder to see.

This was an amazing maze of a home each level involving many stairs and some open to the elements as built into the rock by Cesar Manrique. Omar Sherif bought it one day and lost it 24 hours later in a game of bridge! Only the photos can really describe this huge unique home.
