Full description

Immerse yourself in César Manrique's last work on Lanzarote with a tour of the delicately manicured Cactus Garden. Step into the eclectic César Manrique Foundation to see paintings by Spanish artists in Manrique's old studio and home. Discover the village of Teguise at your own pace on this tour.

The excursion departs from the port of Arrecife to Tahiche. There you will find the house museum of Cesar Manrique, a loving and respectful protector of nature. You will be amazed by his fascinating idea to create a house inside a lava tongue.

Then you will visit the latest work of this international artist: the Cactus Garden. More than 10,000 plants are arranged in a sort of theater with a small pond at its center and an old 18th-century mill as a watchtower.

Finally, you will visit the Teguise market where you will have some free time. Return to the cruise ship at 14:00.

The excursion was great. The explanation was easy to understand in English. Only the pickup location should have been better stated. We couldn't find it and had to contact them by phone.
