For me the best of Cesar Manrique is encapsulated in his home in Tahiche A house that uses the lava bubbles to create unique rooms to fit your mood and the time of day, as well as a delightful swimming pool and barbeque area has to come top of the list of imaginative uses for lava rock.
There are plenty of places to sit amongst the flowers, or in the shade and enjoy a sandwich and a drink bought from the kiosk. The small shop sells reasonably priced jewellery and gifts some made by local artisans. The ground floor of the house is modern with displays of Manrique's work. His paintings, drawings, designs for buildings are exhibited. There are also many paintings by other notable artists.
The swimming pool is a miniature version of the blue lagoon at Jameous del Agua. What parties he must have had. I wanted to move in immediately.
