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. 

What is El Almacén?

El Almacén is a centre that currently operates as the head office of the Lanzarote Council Culture department. It is also the focal point for culture in Arrecife. It hosts various exhibitions throughout the year for local and up and coming artists, with guided tours organised by the Lanzarote Council Culture department.

Route of films set in Lanzarote

Lanzarote is not only one of the most attractive tourist destinations for its beaches and spectacular natural landscapes, but these qualities have also made it the scene of major film and television productions. Recently, series such as Foundation (Apple TV) or Welcome to Eden (Netflix) have chosen the island for the recording of their plots but, before, Lanzarote had already hosted other shootings of great impact. Do you want to discover the route of the films shot in Lanzarote?



What does Lanzarote offer in winter?

They say that the best time to visit Lanzarote are the months of April, May, June, September and October. Why? Because there are more hours of light so you can get to know the island better, because the climate is very pleasant and because the prices are cheaper as it is low season. But who says you can't visit Lanzarote in the cold months? There are many reasons for a trip at this time of year. Enjoy Lanzarote in winter!
