The La Fontaine gallery is located in an historical residential house in the heart of Manama proper, close to the old Souk, dating back a hundred and fifty years.

The property, belonging to the Alireza family, is unique as it captures the essence of a European chateau, while retaining the charm of fine, authentic, Gulf Islamic architecture. It has been restored and renovated by a French architect, Jean Marc Sinan.

It features a number of contemporary art galleries, an open-air amphitheater, a restaurant, a spa, and a Pilates and dance studio.

The gallery features local, regional and wider international contemporary paintings and sculptures.
