Magnificent home and gardens open to public (museum,bar and restaurant). Built for Omar Sharif by Jesus Soto and influenced by Cesar Manrique (responsible for almost every architectural tourist attraction on Lanzarote). One of Lanzarote's top 10 I reckon.

I have never seen a house like this. No one has. The house itself is actually quite small but when you combine the building with the garden is covers quite a large area. There are a lot of steps to negotiate but it is well worth the trouble. There is a story that Omar Sharif owned this house for one... More

Worth visiting just to see how volcanic caves can be designed into different types of rooms. Not practical as a first home but wow what a place to bring friends at the weekend to play cards high above the spectacular pool. The myth of Omar Shariff losing Lagomar over a game of bridge adds to the attraction and worth the... More

What a wonderful place. I imagine this house (for want of something to call it) would be able to tell some tales from over the years. It's is a startling place to visit, with things to discover around every corner. Certainly worth a visit, wish you could have the run of it for a couple of days , would be... More

With friends over, decided to give them a surprise and visit here at night, while the main museum is closed the bar located in the cave is open, it has plenty of snug seating areas plus a terrace to sit and enjoy the night views. As bars go, this must be one of the most unusual locations for one and... More

This warren of a house complex is well worth a visit just to witness the artistic imagination and vision of César Manrique and artist Jesús Soto, and take in some wonderful panoramic views over the volcanic landscape. A little tired around the edges though, could do with a lick of paint.

We did not know what to expect when we drove up Lagomar. we sat by the pool for a drink first then went round the building if you can call it that. It is interwoven into the rock face covering several levels. We found it mind blowing. It had originally be owned by Omar Sharif who then is supposed to... More

Found out about this from some literature in the villa we were staying in. 6 euros each to go in and it was well worth it. What a spectacular house. Does not look much from outside but wow inside it is lush. Beautifully maintained. We decided to eat In the restaurant inside. Food was out of this world. Bit expensive... More

The restaurant is amazing and the multiple bars are brilliant with good staff, reasonable prices, and a unique atmosphere you won't find anywhere else. It's not widely advertised but well worth the visit. Photographers will love the views in the day time too!
