The César Manrique House Museum was the home of the most prolific artist that the island of Lanzarote has ever had, César Manrique, and now exists to showcase the secrets of this amazing artist to the world. The house is in the town of Haría, in the north of Lanzarote, and is known as Casa del Palmeral because of the many palm trees in the area.
Cesar Manrique renovated an old rural farmhouse, applying the same artistic vision that marked his work, the search for comfort and the close link with nature, with a modern vision that also conserved the elements of traditional Lanzarote architecture. He lived there until his death in 1992.
In the House Museum you can visit his studio, where you will find artisanal pieces, unfinished paintings, tables with drawings and the work tools that he used to create his art. All while being able to enjoy the artist’s most personal architectural work.
