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.

Quite a fascinating place but not recommended for those with mobility difficulties. For some reason I was hoping for more though but still worth a visit.

Visited the restaurant here after the meal visited the museum very picturesque see attached photos lots of steps as house once owned by Omar Sharif but only for a short while as he lost the house playing cards we are told. Lots of very interesting rooms built into the cliff side worth the visit.

An interesting property created from caves and molten lava. Omar Sharif bought it in the 1970s and lost it the following day in a bridge game. There are many steps, some quite narrow, to climb to reach the top rooms, but well worth the effort.

What a fantastic place to visit but be prepared to climb there are a lot of stairs but some fantastic views. It is hard to believe Omar had this place for one day as he lost it gambling. The restaurant is well placed near end of visit.

A trip to this place is a must. It is the most spectacular 'house' I've ever seen. It's all cut into a mountain, so not too good if you have mobility problems. Omar Sharif bet this beautiful place on a game of bridge and lost ! All the rooms and tunnels and pools are just fascinating. There is a restaurant and coffee shop on site, so you can spend some time there. If you are going by car it's not very well signposted, there's a sign on the wall of the turn to it that just says museum.
