The Cesar Manrique House is located in Tahiche (Close to Costa Teguise) in Lanzarote.
Cesar Manrique's house was built in 1968 on top of a volcanic lava flow from a volcanic eruption that occurred in 1730-36. It uses the natural formation of five volcanic bubbles for the main rooms within the house. This is a picture of the White Room, one of the Volcanic Bubbles.
If it was not for Cesar Manrique, the Island of Lanzarote would not look like it does now. He fought for all the buildings to be no higher than the tallest palm tree. No Tripods can be used in the House, the only place in Lanzarote with this restriction.
