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.

Information on El Almacén
If you want to discover the alternate side of Arrecife, come and visit the CIC El Almacén. It is a space where you can see plenty of exhibitions. One day a week it also screens films, documentaries, or short independent films in its cinema, which is small but very cosy. After your visit you can enjoy a drink at its bar and find out more about the fascinating history of El Almacén, as seen through the photos on the wall and ornaments. It is open from 10:00 to 21:00, but bear in mind that if you are going on a guided tour or planning to see one of its screenings you need to book ahead on the Lanzarote Council’s website or by calling the telephone number: 928 804 095
