Casa-Museo del Campesino
The Casa-Museo del Campesino is a museum dedicated to the history of traditional peasant farming in Lanzarote. The gleaming white building was designed by local artist and architect Cesar Manrique, and next to the museum stands the artist’s much-photographed sculpture, El Monumento Fecundidad al Campesino Lanzaroteño – a 15-metre tall, totem-pole-like monument to fertility. Entrance to the museum is free, and there are exhibitions relating to local crafts, traditions within the peasant farming communities, and the history of agriculture on the island. And if you find yourself in need of refreshment, a stairwell in the centre of the courtyard leads down into a volcanic cave housing the museum’s restaurant.
