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.

Decided to end our night having some drinks there! OMG what a beautiful place! Loads of hidden spots, good drinks and not expensive at all. The location is mesmerizing, they architecture blends in perfectly with the cave and the mountain. We didn't get to eat, which we now regret. I reckon the best time tone there is around the sunset...

Really lovely, quiet place to have a drink or some food. You can walk around, they have music in the evenings, and Omar Shariff's house is great!

We couldn't find any trips to LagOmar so had to get a taxi, from Costa Teguise about €15 each way. But we thought it worth it. Absolutely stunning, tranquil, carved into the side of a volcano, just visit! Not a huge place but only about €6 and you can stay as long as you want. There's a restaurant too, but... More

A coach trip took us to this architect's indulgence. Lovely to explore, but steep so inaccessible to anyone who can't do stairs. We were fine, though had to keep moving along as popular. A novelty as somewhere to stay, it may have been dangerous to be anything other than sober, carved into the rock as it was. Nostalgia abounds for... More

This is a fantastic surreal home built into the side of a hill using the natural materials and formations of the rocky hillside. It was aledgedly bought by Omar Sherief but he lost it almost immediately in a game of bridge and is now a museum. As you walk through this fantastical place new vista's open up un-expectedly before you.... More

what a wonderful place and having met omar sherif many years ago was wonderful to see the place he lost in a card game, you need good legs to walk around, there are tricks to avoid the water steps, was hilarious to watch my other half on the steps, she will not thank me for that comment, but only 3...

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
