Cesar Manrique Sculpture

Shepherd and two dogs

Monumento al Campesino

Cesar Manrique created giant sculpture paying homage to Lanzarote Farmers.

 

Located at the centre of the island in San Bartolome.

The huge sculpture was created in memory of the strength shown by Lanzarote farmers over the years. Working all day in very adverse conditions the farmers kept residents alive with their food and wine produce.

The sculpture was created out of water tanks from boats. On site is also a museum.
