What a fantastic interesting and quirky place. I loved the house and the sculptures. The vision this artist must have had is insightful, recycling long before anyone else. Also the forethought to safeguard the island from high rise buildings, whilst actively encouraging tourism.
Very interesting guided pathway through the residence. Rooms of artwork, some semblance of style and era. Enjoyed the many different media which was creatively used though mainly 2d mediums. The architecture represented a creative transformation while also adapting to what was formed volcanically. I'd recommended taking the time. 8 Euro entry.
I love this place, today was our second visit. The staff couldn't be nicer. Last year my little girl fell in the car park and cut her head pretty badly (her fault not the car park!) after trying to help her in the on site first aid room a member of staff accompanied us to the hospital and checked us in. I really can't imagine that happening in the UK. Once her head was stitched we went back to the Foundation and we were treated like royalty. Anyways, back to today. Nice and quiet when we visited. So nice to walk through the cool, beautiful rooms and enjoy the tranquil atmosphere.
Incredible place, probably the best house in the world. There's no amount of money in the world that could recreate this house. It is made from natural volcanic solidified lava that flowed out from whenever the volcano last erupted. It looks like a 60's Bond villian layer, truly peaceful and incredible. A must visit if you're staying in the island.
Very interesting place and not so crowded compared to other places. Even our 5 years old liked it. The island's inhabitants can be glad to have had such a genius there.
