Fundación César Manrique

Fundación César Manrique in Tahiche, Lanzarote

The Foundation César Manrique was originally the home of the artist; he discovered the land for himself when he saw a fig tree sticking out a subterranean lava bubble on a walk through a lava field. He then decided to purchase the property. However the owner, thinking the land is worthless, gave it to him for free. With the construction of his house and the integration of the five volcanic bubbles, Manrique brought nature and art in an impressive manner in line. Today the foundation shows like a museum how the artist lived and how he combined natural landscape with enthusiastic art.

You find the foundation 2 km south of Tahiche. At a roundabout, turn west and take the road to San Bartolomé. The Foundation is signposted. After about 200m you meet the large parking lot.
