At a meeting point in Costa Teguise, Puerto del Carmen or Playa Blanca, you’ll board an air-conditioned coach destined for the César Manrique Foundation — the former home of the artist responsible for significant architecture and sculptures in Lanzarote. On arrival at the avant-garde building, explore the structure — which is constructed amid a cluster of volcanic rock bubbles — independently. Amble along paths studded with cacti, delve into chambers encased by volcanic bubbles and delight in the fountains, palms and pools that decorate the house. After enjoying masterpieces by Picasso in the upstairs art gallery, return to your original departure point or continue your tour if you’ve upgraded. If you’ve chosen to upgrade your tour, you’ll head to the charming town of Teguise to stroll its cobbled streets. Hear of the town’s history and the weekly market that transforms the somnolent town into a thriving center of commerce. Browse stalls brimming with artisan souvenirs and local produce, and enjoy music and dances performed by street entertainers. After a lengthy shopping stint, return to your vehicle and relax during the journey back to your original departure point.
