I visited this place a couple of times last week. I loved it here. I could literally have spent all day here just wandering around. The area inside and outside was beautiful. The area is so well kept and clean. We also ate lunch here on Friday and the meal was delicious and can thoroughly recommend. This place is free... More

We spotted the monument from the road. It is free to park and you are able to climb the monument. As you walk further into the site there are lots of local hand-craft workshops which you are able to take part in for a small charge, although at the time of our visit none were operational. It was very quiet... More

Where do you start when you get to this Museum. A bit bafflling - the first thing you're presented with is a handcraft exhibition - apparently - except when you go down to it - it's set out with many dining tables and no exhibition. OK! So next we take a path round the back of this building along a... More

Visited Al Campesino museum and monument on the first rainy day on Lanzarote for 3 months. It was a truly unexpected and wonderful experience, another example of Cesar Manrique's genius, what other country celebrates its peasants with such a monument and museum. Had lunch in the luxurious restaurant, very tasty local specialities which rounded off the great day nicely.

Well worth a visit and to spend an hour or so. It always amazes me to see the Manrique influence on the island, and this place is certainly one if them. Just to walk through the underground entrance to the impressive restaurant is incredible. Entry is free!

A quick stop to see the sculpture by Cesar Manrique in honour of the hard working peasant farmers which is made of blocks to represent a farmer and his camel !! A few craft shops around a courtyard - but no demonstrations when we were there.

It's a very unusual place. Not my cup of tea personally. Don't feel like I'd need to re visit anyway and wouldn't make a special trip again to visit,it was just one of the stops included in the tour me and my partner took. It's all modern art,which neither of us are in to.

The main reason to stop is the Manrique sculpture which is certainly worth a close up look. The adjoining buildings are clearly old and in the traditional styles and worth a look around. Many host traditional crafts but weren't active when we visited.
