Fundacion Manrique

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

César Manrique was not only an architect, he was also sculptor, painter, landscape artist, urban designer, monument preserver, environmentalist and construction advisor,

a man with a great vision.

He wrote: ‘When I returned from New York, I came with the intention of turning my native island into one of the more beautiful places on the planet, due to the endless possibilities that Lanzarote had to offer, it was an ambition he triumphantly fulfilled.

The natives still today say that he has "made" Lanzarote.

(This picture was taken in 2010 from inside the house where he lived before he died in 1992.)

Hola qurido amigo Martin, excelente fotografía y buena información de César Manrique. Like y fav. Hace mucho tiempo que quiero ir a Lanzarote y quizá vaya primero ahí y más adelante a París, los viajes se deben tomar con calma, la billetera no es muy grande.

Agradecido por la visita y agradable comentario a mis fotos.

Un abrazo y mis mejores deseos desde Mallorca, Ángel.
