César Manrique is Lanzarote’s most popular artist. The César Manrique Foundation (Fundación César Manrique) aims to showcase his story and artistic legacy to everyone who visits the island. It is found in Teguise, in the small town of Tahíche.
The facility covers around 3,000m2, on a 30,000m2 farm. The confluence between the building and nature catches the eye, which is a trademark of César Manrique, who always sought to ensure that his buildings adapted to their natural surroundings.
