Casa Museo César Manrique

Museum in Haría

This palm-fringed property was the final home of the island's favourite son and has been opened as a museum-cum-shrine. The house is frozen in time, complete with Manrique's clothes in the closet and personal art collection adorning the walls. The decor is fairly modest when compared to his former home in Tahiche, though the main bathroom is sublime. The star attraction though is his studio, preserved exactly as it was the day he died, with unfinished works still in situ.

Keep hold of your ticket; if you present it at the Fundación César Manrique in Tahiche you get a discount on the entrance fee.
