Went here for a look at the house built into the bubbles in the volcano. Part of it is an art gallery and then down below is the house. Very nice to see. The gardens are also beautiful. Cost 8 euro to get in and approx. 8 euro each way in a taxi. Well worth a visit.

Cesar Manrique and volcanoes have contributed to making Lanzarote the beautiful island it is. This attraction brings them together beautifully in that Manrique has used the features of a lava flow to construct his house. Anyone would be amazed at how the various rooms and the swimming pool have been fitted into volcanic bubbles and the breathtaking way in which the lava flow seamlessly runs into the living room. I feel this is the top attraction on the island.

Cesar Manrique created this house inside a series of lava bubbles underground. The cave walls are mostly painted white giving the property a light and airy feel. It's rather surreal in places. I felt I could have been on the set of a science fiction film. The rooms are artistically furnished (the style reminded me of villas in Santorini) and the swimming pool is gorgeous. We didn't see any bedrooms. I think perhaps they were the ground level rooms now used as art galleries.

Access is easy even for those walking with a stick. I don't think wheelchair users would be able to visit the underground section.

Definitely worth a visit. There is a place where you can buy drinks and ice creams. I didn't see a cafe though. Shame there was no restaurant but I suspect they want to keep people moving though the site during high season.

Amazing places, from the crab caves to his house built from the volcano lava flow, see his artistry in all these places and admire a man with vision, whose life was tragically cut short.
Younger kids may just appreciate the crab caves though.
Try to go early or late to avoid the coach parties, if using a hire car (well worth hiring for a day or two, as we found prices were cheap - Jan 2014)

What a wonderful place to live. Cesar was an inspired designer and it is refreshing to see such wonderful architecture - if that is how one can describe this house of surprises and delights. The Picasso's were interesting, but Caesars works were more so.
