Nazaret

Nazaret is a small traditional Lanzarote village, with around a thousand residents, full of little whitewashed houses. However, what has really turned it into a tourist attraction are its caves and its museum, which legend has it, once belonged to Omar Sharif.

Where is Nazaret?

Nazaret is located in the centre of Lanzarote, between Teguise and Tahiche.
It houses face south towards Las Laderas, a mountain hiding one of the island’s best kept secrets.

What to see in Nazaret?

The main tourist attraction in Nazaret, and what this little town is known for, are its cave houses built into the mountain, especially the house that is said to have belonged to the Egyptian actor Omar Sharif, although he denied this.

Nevertheless, everyone comes to see that one house, today the Lagomar museum restaurant, a unique villa designed by the local architect César Manrique, built into a volcanic rock cliff with winding stairs and an extraordinary structure, with a small lake, exotic gardens and secret tunnels.

It is located among black mounds of volcanic lava, in an old quarry and today operates as a museum and restaurant, El Balagué, where concerts are held for audiences to enjoy some live jazz.
