Cesar Manrique's House and Museum in Haria: César Manrique’s House and Museum at HaríaIn a stroll through César Manrique’s House and Museum at Haría, in northern Lanzarote, the visitor catches a glimpse of the rooms where the painter lived and worked his last years.
Located in a handsome palm forest, his last home is wrapped in an intimate, cosy atmosphere. Two courtyards serve as an antechamber to a surprising world of personal belongings, utensils, crafter’s tools and a motley of minor treasures for which Manrique invented an aesthetic purpose. The home, set in a space characterised by elegant materials and good taste, is a reflection of all the finest features of a traditional island dwelling. The luxuriant outdoor and indoor plant life contributes to a calm and relaxing ambience.
In the workshop set off from the house, the visitor discovers the original scenario where Manrique worked, surrounded by pigment, drawings, easels and unfinished paintings, all conserved just as he left them the day he died.
The visit is a unique opportunity to obtain a close-up view of the human side of Lanzarote’s great artist in a truly singular world sited in the midst of the peaceful natural beauty of Haría Valley.
