LagOmar Museum 

The legend behind this unique “house” (and hence its name) is that the famous Egyptian actor Omar Sharif, of Dr Zhivago fame, bought it. Unfortunately, he got involved in a gambling bridge game with the developer and promptly lost it within 24 hours. According to information on display there, what Omar Sharif did not know, was that the developer was a champion bridge player!

Regardless of the legend, LagOmar, yet another of César Manrique’s ideas, is a magical fusion of art, architecture, landscaping, horticulture and geology and a gorgeous place to meander around. It makes the most of its position with far reaching views. There are all sorts of interesting nooks and crannies and many places where the surrounding rock provides a cool respite on a hot day.

There is a bar/restaurant.

Strongly recommended.

Situated on the north side of the town of Nazaret, just south of Teguise.
