Casa Museo del Campesino
Located in the geographical center of Lanzarote in the municipality of San Bartolomé, la Casa-Museo del Campesino, is César Manrique’s work in recognition towards the efforts of the farmers of Lanzarote, who faced the most adverse conditions to provide life to the territory.
La Casa-Museo del Campesino is a journey through the Architecture, Agriculture, Crafts and traditional Gastronomy, which is completed with the Monumento a la Fecundidad (Monument to Fertility), an avant-garde work in which César Manrique wanted to pay his particular tribute.

The restaurant offers the tasting of traditional dishes and flavors of the island’s cuisine: millet broth, goat meat stew, octopus with green mojo, or the famous canarian wreckfish stew, made with market products, all paired with the largest selection of wines of Lanzarote Designation of Origin.
And for cheese lovers, we have a careful selection of fresh, semi-cured or cured Lanzarote cheeses. Handmade cheeses made mostly with goat’s milk, but also exquisite blends with sheep’s and cow’s milk. Undoubtedly a pleasure for the senses and a better souvenir.
