Owner description: 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.

A must if in Lanzarote. We visited this unique place built within volcanic rock before our tour to the market. Built by Lanzarote architect Cesar Manrique. Lots of rooms to discover, could easily get lost, loved the water steps, so unusual. The views are fantastic but this place is hilly so I would not recommend if you have difficulty with mobility. Interesting that it was once Omar Sharif's home until he added it to his stakes in a game of bridge and then lost. There is a gift shop and a restaurant if you want to spend a little longer here.

This is a hidden gem. I have been here a number of times over the years and it is always the place I must visit. It is a little hidden oasis, a tranquil beautiful place.

what an amazing place hidden away with a good story.
spent around an hr walking around here taking in all the amazing views and beautifly surrounding exploring every nook and cranny that we could would definitely come here again just to stand at the top and look down on the pool and caves once more only down side to our visit was that there seemed to be a lot of maintenance going on with odd wall being painted and the aviary and stepping brigde over water being closed off. there's also a nice little bar restaurant area where you can sit listening to the trickle of the water look over the pool although a drink here was a treat as a little expensive especially when you a big family

Wow, what an amazing place. The imagination that went into the design of this place is mind blowing. The views from the top are breathtaking. Overall it's a bit tired now, but would be difficult to repair/update without changing the unique character of the building.

We visited here as part of a coach tour, the North Tour . It would have been good to have had a guide but nevertheless this is the most most incredible house I have ever seen.

As a bridge player myself, but not up to Omar standards, it was incredible to think this house was lost on a game of cards.

A tortuous progression up the hillside from room to gallery to pool to room - simply amazing. What an inspired architect!
