Although it's wll-known for the fact that Omar Sharif owned it for a while, there are better reasons to visit it. The complex was designed (as most landmarks on Lanzarote are) by Cesar Manrique. This place, even more than his own home, is an example of how creative Manrique was. Always finding ways to fit in with the surroundings. So here you can see how the pools are shaped to blend in with their surroundings. How he found nooks and crannies in the hillside to turn into rooms. Building couches that flow along with the line of the wall etc. Highly recommended.

This Museum is worth seeing, because of the history, involving O’mar Sharif.The story goes O’mar lost the house over a game of cards (bridge). O’mar only had the house for one day. he lost it to the man he brought it off.Rumer goes the winner was a European bridge player. The house is a bit run down,it needs a bit of tender care. It would be a shame if it went to wreck & ruing. O’mar was in that great film Dr Zhivago about the Russian Revolution.

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 a preservation of a house built 40 years ago of course it isn't going to be up to date.

There are lots of steps, level changes and some stepping stones but also LOTS of places to stop, have a rest and enjoy the view. No real route so have fun exploring it at your own pace and direction.

This is only a review of the museum but we did stop by the cafe/bar and have a coffee and cake (€4.50) which was delicious.

Visit time approx 2hrs (with coffee!)

Many other reviews have fully covered the Omar Sharif link and history so we will focus on the practicality of finding it! If you come by car. Out of Arrecife follow the LZ-1 from the ring road towards Tahiche then the LZ-10 towards Teguise. After the turn to Jamis del Agua you come to the village of Nazaret and right at the end of the village there is a small sign "Museo" on the wall so turn right here and follow the signs that eventually say Lagomar. Coming from the north there are no signs! so take the first on the left after the Nazaret village sign. Plenty of parking outside
€6 entry - great value to wander around but lots of steps.
One surprise was the quality and value of the restaurant. We had the local fish - Cherna (Stone bass - a bigger version of sea bass) that was excellent and expertly grilled - the terrace is so relaxing so take your time! (Restaurant closes at 4pm)

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.
