La Fontaine centre of contemporary art is an historical monument dating back to a hundred and fifty years, located in the heart of Manama close to the old ‘Suq’.
The centre is the only one of its kind throughout the Middle East, revered by all as a masterpiece of architectural and artistic glory. The property, belonging to the Alireza family, is very unique as it captures the grand essence of a European chateau, while retaining the charm of the fine, authentic Gulf Islamic architecture.
It has been completely restored and renovated by the French artist Jean Marc Sinan, who transformed a beautiful residential mansion into a distinctive, exceptional centre for art and leisure enthusiasts alike.
It features an art gallery, an open-air amphitheatre, an exquisite fine dining restaurant, an exclusive spa, and a pilates studio, the first of its kind in the Gulf region.
