The basics

The foundation sits on a landscape formed by an 18th-century volcanic eruption that vastly changed the Lanzarote terrain. It’s not just built atop the frozen-in-time lava, but among it, with living space occupying five volcanic bubbles. The whitewashed exterior, by contrast, is inspired by traditional island architecture. From a funky room with volcanic rock pouring through a window to a garden bordered by a rainbow-colored mural, every detail of the former home is a visual delight.

Visitors can peruse the house’s unique corners, while checking out various exhibitions, the café, and shop. Those interested in the artist’s work can tour the foundation independently, or join a guided tour of the island focused on Manrique’s work. These tours typically include stops at the Cactus Garden (Jardin de Cactus), Mirador del Rio, Jameos del Agua, and the Monumento al Campesino.

The man behind the foundation

César Manrique, a native of Lanzarote, studied and lived overseas for many years before returning to the island in the 1960s. His efforts helped ensure that growing tourism didn’t result in growing skyscrapers. The mission continues to this day via the foundation, which aims to preserve Manrique’s work, while advancing environmental and artistic causes he valued.
