Top Cesar Manrique attractions in Lanzarote

When visiting Lanzarote, you can’t ignore the name César Manrique. Manrique was a Spanish artist and local hero who lived in Lanzarote. Decades ago, Manrique saw the rise of visitors an the potential the island had for tourism. But he wanted to avoid mass tourism and high-rise buildings. Manrique had a major influence on the planning regulations in Lanzarote. Most major attractions on the island are either designed by him or are a tribute to him so the name Manrique is all over the place! Let’s have a look what are the top Cesar Manrique attractions in Lanzarote.

Searching locations for your landscape photography

Set up your tripod, choose your camera settings and press the shutter. Click! Your image is made. Doesn’t seem so hard, does it? Oh how I wish it were that simple. There’s more to making a great picture than that. Apart from editing afterwards, searching for locations takes up the most time in this whole exercise! People often ask about finding locations to shoot, they contact me on my Instagram asking the whereabouts of particular place and how I have found it. The best way by far is to strap on your boots and go for a walk.

Villa Delmas: Casa Emblematica in Haria, Lanzarote

During my trip in Lanzarote I stayed in Villa Delmas, a beautiful countryhouse in Haria. The property is very centrally located in this tranquil little town. Villa Delmas that was built over 300 years ago by Ambrosio Perdomo and still remained in the Perdomo family until now, after 7 generations! Villa Delmas is the first Casa Emblematica in Lanzarote. It is considered a monument for its architecture, gardens and for the personalities who lived in it. It was the famous artist César Manrique who designed the pool and garden area! Basically if you want to see a work of Manrique, you don’t even have to leave the house: Bonus points for Villa Delmas!
