The Cesar Manrique House-Museum is located in Haria. The artist of Lanzarote left his mark in many places of the island and is even more intensified in this workshop that would be his home until his last days. It is one of the most representative sites of Manrique's work and a must visit to understand his artistic vision.
The rural house, located in a palm grove north of Lanzarote, has a collection of Cesar Manrique belongings, which is accessed through two courtyards. The space is characterized by the nobility of its materials, aesthetics, the taste of the artist and its aesthetics, which included handmade pieces intended for this purpose. The tour allows you to contemplate the rooms of the house, its traditional Lanzarote's architecture and the workshop where Manrique worked, isolated from the house and which shows unfinished works, tables with drawings, trestles and other artistic materials. The vegetation also forms an important part of the interior and exterior of the house, achieving Manrique's integration between nature and man-made structures.
The visit to the House-Museum is a way of approaching the more humane side of the artist from Lanzarote in the middle of a natural environment in the valley of Haría. The César Manrique House-Museum has been declared a Cultural Biennial since 2003.
Manrique's work remains thanks to the César Manrique Foundation, which can also be visited with a ticket for both the foundation and the House-Museum. Other works by César Manrique that can't be missed while following the route of the artist are: Jameos del Agua, Cueva de los Verdes, Mirador del Río and the National Park Timanfaya. Throughout Lanzarote you can see the harmony that Manrique was looking for with nature, promoting the beauties of his land and sharing the love of art and the environment.
Tickets can be purchased at the Casa Museo Cesar Manrique (House-Museum) and at the César Manrique Foundation.
