Located in the heart of Manama, close to the old Suq and revered by all as a masterpiece of architectural and artistic glory, La Fontaine Centre Of Contemporary Art is an historical monument dating back a hundred and fifty years. Completely restored and renovated by French artist Jean Marc Sinan, who transformed a beautiful residential house into a distinctive, exceptional centre for art and leisure enthusiasts alike, La Fontaine captures the grand essence of a European château, while retaining the charm of fine, authentic Gulf Islamic architecture. La Fontaine is a special haven for both art lovers and architectural connoisseurs, and is the only one of its kind throughout the Middle East.
Beautiful and elegant, La Fontaine is Bahrain' s first private museum, and the old resident's traditional design, comprising a series of rooms around a central courtyard, lends itself perfectly to a gallery; its high ceilings and expanse of wall space beautifully offsetting everything from the ancient and extraordinary of history’s civilizations, to contemporary artworks, sculptures, photography and design by leading international artists. La Fontaine also features an open-air amphitheatre, an exquisite fine dining restaurant, an exclusive spa and a state-of-the-art Pilates and dance studio, the first of its kind in the Gulf region.
