The Manrique house in Haria is SO worth a visit!

After hearing many glowing reports we decided to head off to Haria this morning to see the latest Manrique addition to the Island; this is where the great man lived and I quite understand why he is is so loved and revered. Nestled in ‘the land of 1000 palms’  his house is a delight. It [...]
