Palm grove House.

César Manrique House Museum. Haría

The César Manrique House Museum is located in a handsome palm grove in the picturesque village of Haria, which still conserves many of Lanzarote’s traditions. In Haría, the artist found the quietude and harmony with nature that he had always pursued.

In early 1986, he began to build his new home, re-using and adapting a run-down farmhouse sited on farmland he had purchased in the nineteen seventies. Manrique revisited the language of traditional architecture with a modern vision governed by aesthetics and comfort. He lived here until his death in 1992. In 2013 the house was opened to the public as a home and museum. Visitors are afforded a view of the rooms and the studio where the painter worked and lived during the last few years of his life.

Two courtyards introduce the visitor to a surprising world of personal belongings, utensils, objects found by chance and handcrafted accessories that Manrique turned to an aesthetic purpose. This is a space characterised by noble materials and good taste. The exuberant indoor and outdoor plant life creates serene and inviting atmospheres. The studio is in a separate building where the artist painted daily, surrounded by oils, tables laden with drawings, easels and unfinished paintings. It has been conserved just as he left it when he died.

Visitors embark on a unique experience in the calm of a natural environment, a truly singular world that portrays Lanzarote’s great artist at his most personal.
