The old house of the artist César Manrique
The Foundation is located in what was the personal residence of César Manrique. It rises in a very peculiar and original field of five volcanic bubbles. Taking advantage of the bubbles he created five different rooms and inside a pool of identical design to the Los Jameos del Agua, but smaller.
Circular spaces that allow light to pass through mysterious openings, plant life growing inexplicably from a black surface, floors and bright white walls, and water, as the protagonist etc… all symbols of distinction present in most of his works.
Upstairs, what were once household units are the museum where you can see the work of Manrique, and other works from his private collection of artists such as Picasso, Miró, Chillida, Guerrero, Chirino, Sempere , etc.
