The CIC was built at the start of the 20th Century in two bourgeois houses in Arrecife. Until 1970 this building was the head office of the Arrecife School of Arts and Works. In 1973, the Lanzarote artist César Manrique renovated the property to create one space to help develop contemporary art.

The 5 best windless beaches in Lanzarote
Lanzarote is one of the most beautiful islands in Europe, but it is also one of the windiest due to its location and orographic characteristics. In fact, its beaches with perfect temperatures at any time of the year make the island of Lanzarote one of the tourist destinations chosen by people from all over the world.
What should you keep in mind about the wind in Lanzarote for your holiday on the island?
The eastern islands of the Canary archipelago have a particular arid climate that makes their winds also special. Thus, the islands of Lanzarote and Fuerteventura have a desert landscape and warm temperatures throughout the year that, together with the low rainfall, make up a very particular climate.
