Description:

Magnificent home and gardens open to public (museum,bar and restaurant)....

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.

We stumbled across this after finding a flyer for the museum in our hotel. The museum is beautiful. Lovely open areas with incredible architecture and gardens. We took a taxi from our hotel in Arrecife costing just under €15 each way. Tickets to enter for adults are €6 however you can upgrade your ticket to include a drink at the... More

Not very well advertised on the island as I came across it as part of the skyride experience at the 6d cinema. For a limited time it belonged to Omar Sharif before he allegedly lost it in a poker match. Open from 10am to 6pm as an attraction costing 6 euros but after 6pm it's free entry but only lagoon...

We purchased tickets for the museum entrance with a drink choice. It is an interesting place with many twists and turns into the home. They believe that Omar Sharif was once the owner of this house and lost it in a card game. There is a restaurant and little cafes to enjoy a drink. Beautiful places to sit and take... More

Of all the places we visited on our trip this was by far the best but also THE MOST DIFFICULT place to find. It is amazing but get there early so you have the place to yourself before the big tourist coaches arrive. Aim to arrive for 09.30 or 10am and you'll be fine. Thoroughly recommend

Its a nice place and worth a look but not very well kept. There were 2 dead birds which looked like they had been there a while. The cafe is very over priced and cost us €20.50 for drinks for a family of four. It cost 6 euro for adults to get in and 2 euro for kids. It does... More

Built on original plans by Manrique, the house was renovated by the actual German owner some 30 years ago. Great architecture! Interesting story on how Omar Sharif owned this house for 24 hours...

Booked dinner for 3 at this restaurant. Fantastic food and great friendly service. Good atmosphere and good value. We left plenty of time before our dinner reservation to walk round this fantastically whimsical home - designed by local artist/designer, Cesar Manrique - and owned at one time by Omar Sharif. Walking round you can almost imagine the fantastic 'Hollywood' parties... More

Apart from Manrique's own house in Haria you'll probably never see architecture like this again, so it's well worth stopping off to see Lagomar. Entry is EUR 6 for adults and EUR 2 for kids (Juy 2016). Cafe is expensive but the place is unique so you may just want to linger and take it in. Try to go when... More

I've been to Lanzarote a number of times and this has never been on my radar, came across it by chance and was very happily surprised. Conceived by the talented César Manrique and designed by the artist Jesús Soto for the British developer Sam Benady it is a little known Manrique design that's well worth a visit. In the early...
