César Manrique Foundation – Lanzarote

Spanish artist César Manrique ensured his island home would keep a balance with its surrounding ecology. There are no high-rise hotels on the island and they all had to keep to the local traditions. His art can be seen everywhere on the island, including the place that was originally his home. Manrique built the house within lava bubbles on a volcanic lava field in 1968. Sadly he died in a road accident in 1992.
