Visited Al Campesino museum and monument on the first rainy day on Lanzarote for 3 months. It was a truly unexpected and wonderful experience, another example of Cesar Manrique's genius, what other country celebrates its peasants with such a monument and museum. Had lunch in the luxurious restaurant, very tasty local specialities which rounded off the great day nicely.

Well worth a visit and to spend an hour or so. It always amazes me to see the Manrique influence on the island, and this place is certainly one if them. Just to walk through the underground entrance to the impressive restaurant is incredible. Entry is free!

It was very quiet when we went with no demos or anything but it was still very interesting to wander around. The cafe was lovely and the shop had some nice souvenirs in it. The sculpture is very special. Its a lovely place that is well worth you stopping by if you are in the area.

A quick stop to see the sculpture by Cesar Manrique in honour of the hard working peasant farmers which is made of blocks to represent a farmer and his camel !! A few craft shops around a courtyard - but no demonstrations when we were there.

It's a very unusual place. Not my cup of tea personally. Don't feel like I'd need to re visit anyway and wouldn't make a special trip again to visit,it was just one of the stops included in the tour me and my partner took. It's all modern art,which neither of us are in to.

The main reason to stop is the Manrique sculpture which is certainly worth a close up look. The adjoining buildings are clearly old and in the traditional styles and worth a look around. Many host traditional crafts but weren't active when we visited.

A Manrique statue and a vistor centre demonstating local crafts, except nobody was at home so it was all a passive look round rather than an interation with the people working. Despite the signs we could not fid the shop...

Architecture of this site is very impressive, the place is a beautiful and set in a lovely location. Cafe is very acceptable. Small museum is worth a look around. One of the more impressive buildings from Cesar M.

Quiet, white washed museum and restaurant in Manrique style with one of his sculptures towering at the entrance. The staff were very friendly and our waiter explained to me how the farmers worked in the days before the latest eruptions. The seafood rice dish was lovely and the pudding was the best we had all holiday. Recommended.

We loved the monument itself, though some kind of interpretive text would have been good. We had been looking forward to visiting the neighbouring attraction and possibly buying some local crafts, but other than a café and some musicians and dancers in traditional costume, it was completely dead. Nothing else seemed to be open, but it was a Sunday and... More
