The following are some of the must-see and do items on the Costa Teguise.
1. Fundación César Manrique
Fundación César Manrique is set in the home of César Manrique, artist extraordinaire, who lived in the house from 1968 to 1988. Totally designed by Manrique, the house is set in and on the lava from volcanic eruptions (dating back to around 1730) and some of the rooms occupy bubbles in that lava with tunnels leading between them. The architecture and furniture design is functional and attractive and visitors can explore most of the house, as well as the outdoor swimming pool and entertainment area, the garden and the artist’s studio.
