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.

Beautiful place and some really crazy architecture even my 3 year old enjoyed it. There are some inventive stepping stones and the man liked to party so I can only imagine how that went down

We visited Lagomar museum at around 3:30ish on a weekday and found we pretty much had the place to ourselves. The building is fantastic with breathtaking architecture - some of the terrible reviews complaining about the '1970s kitchen and whirlpool bath' are clearly idiots- it's...More

Pure James Bond setting. We spent half a day there including a delicious lunch. Incredible setting cut into the rock face. Well worth a visit in the sunshine.

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.
