Cesar Manrique

The Cesar Manrique Foundation is located in Taro de Tahiche (Close to Costa Teguise). It is probably the work that best represents Manrique's artistic and personal ideals.

Cesar Manrique's house was built in 1968 on top of a volcanic trail from a volcanic eruption that occurred in 1730-36. It uses the natural formation of five volcanic bubbles for the main rooms within the house. The outside of the house and upper level is an inspiration from the traditional architecture of Lanzarote.

If it was not for Cesar Manrique, the Island of Lanzarote would not look like it does now. He fought for all the buildings to be no higher than the tallest palm tree and that all the houses should be the same colour (expect for the painted wood which colour changes on location of houses).

Below are some pictures of Cesar Manrique's house, to view a larger image just click on the picture.

Visited the gallery and foundation a couple of years ago and quite simply it is stunning . The stark natural beauty of the location and surroundings obviously had a profound impact on Snr Manrique and his works are in tune with that . Viva Cesar Manrique , viva Lanzarote y viva Espana

Absolutely wonderful and definitely worth a visit - the pictures i saw before I went really didn't do it justice. There is quite a lot to see and the house itself is very beautiful and unique. There is a lovely cafe area and gift shop too. My favourite trip in Lanzarote.

Without Cesar Manrique Lanzarote would just be another high rise multi coloured tourist destination. This house which used to belong to the late Cesar Manrique is one of many attractions he designed and worth a visit.
