Built between 1776 and 1779, its advantageous location on top of a cliff was an added asset to the powerful Castle of San Gabriel and made it an essential spot to defend Arrecife from and its port against the threat of modern states in conflict with the Spanish Empire.

It was abandoned for almost a century, when it became less necessary to use it as a fortress.

César Manrique convinced the authorities of the island to transform the ancient fortress into an art gallery, and the International Contemporary Art Museum opened in 1976.

The artist from Lanzarote started the 1st International Visual Arts Competition, including the work of Picasso, Tàpies, Miró, Mompó, Millares, Zóbel, among others, becoming the origin of one of the best abstract art collections of the second half of the 20th Century in the Canary Islands.

The fortress was expanded with new construction work being done, a modern restaurant where Manrique showed his true creative potential, turning it into one of the most attractive spaces of the building, a place where visitors can taste avant-garde dishes sheltered by the coast and the sea as they enjoy the impressive view of the bay through giant glass windows.
• Get to know more about Lanzarote’s History.
• Enjoy the The MIAC collection.
• Find out why César Manrique is such an important character in the island of Lanzarote.

Opening Times: 10:00h – 20:00h
