The museum is the former home of Cesar Manrique and certainly shows off his vision for tranforming the landscape into a place to live and work.

We were on a bit of a self guided Cesar Manrique tour of the island for the few days we were on the island and despite the hugs numbers of tourists this was a great place to visit and quite inspirational. Very much a gallery/museum and celebration of Césars life. The place must have been a great party house. Do visit his other house in Haria if you get chance as it show a nice contrast and you can see where he lived in his latter years. Recommended.

I must admit, until we started planning our first visit to Lanzarote, we had never heard of Cesar Manrique. He sounded quite interesting so had to check out Fundacion Cesar Manrique. First impressions were not great with of lots of photos of Cesar Manrique and his wife together with friends and a few films of times gone by. Once into the main house though those soon went. How unusual the place is making use of the natural surroundings to create a wonderful place. On seeing this our thoughts were drawn back to another eccentric, Clough Williams-Ellis, who designed and built the Portmeirion Italianate village in North Wales. Well worth a look and we have now visited other Manrique locations on the island.

Definitely worth a visit to see how Cesar Manrique transformed a series of caverns in a lava flow into an attractive and interesting house. Apart from the brilliant architecture the museum tries to illustrate Cesar Manrique's philosophy and campaign to save his beloved island from the real estate vultures who had scarred the neighbouring islands with their developments. In many ways he was a visionary who could see how man should learn to treasure the environment and integrate into it. Remnants of the man were missing: books, furniture, paintings and personal effects have been removed, the atelier where he painted has been whitewashed, bed-room, kitchen and bathroom are not open to the public. There is an air of "cult of personality" about the place. All in all well worth a visit to discover a man whose influence on life is modern Lanzarote has been so profound.
