A painter, architect and sculptor from Lanzarote
The César Manrique Foundation is located in the centre of Lanzarote, in the house known as Taro de Tahiche. A painter, architect and sculptor, it was Manrique’s brainchild to make this island the most beautiful of all. This building, constructed on five volcanic bubbles, since converted into rooms, is an example of the artist’s own style of architecture. Here is where the visitor can best understand how Lanzarote was transformed, mixing art with nature while at the same time respecting the landscape and the traditions of the island.
A museum dedicated to César Manrique
When you visit the César Manrique Foundation, it is possible to see the most representative work of this artist, one of the most important in the Canary Islands, as well as an exhibition of contemporary art which formed part of his own private collection. The conversion of the house into museum was supervised by Manrique himself just a few months before his death. It can be visited every day of the week until 6pm.
