César Manrique & Lanzarote

      When we think of the unique culture and art of Lanzarote we automatically think of the influence which César Manrique had on the island. The painter, sculptor and architect allowed his love for the island to flow into his work and strengthened environmental awareness in Lanzarote by the sustainable and respectful way he treated nature.

      The island of Lanzarote became Manrique's muse, influencing his work in the choice of colours and materials he used in his search for a balance between human beings and nature. His impressive works will form the cultural highlights of your exploration of the island of Lanzarote.

      Thanks to him we can marvel at los Jameos del Agua with its spectacular natural auditorium, la Casa del Campesino - the 'Farmers House' built in the traditional style of the island, the Mirador del Rio and the architect's own residence, built in petrified blue-black lava and the present home of the Cesar Manrique foundation.
