Wonderful place, the square, the ambient, the sounds, the church... and of course, the landscape around... With all those kinds of green, grey and brown colours of one oasis in the middle of a desert.

This small village with its lovely whitewashed Church is OK for half an hour or so - a quick coffee and a mooch around but there is not much to keep the attention.

If you love visiting old churches this is surely one not to miss. With its amazing history and an amazing collection of artwork and artifacts it a beautiful building to wander around taking in the ambiance of its history. On the negative side photography is banned whilst inside the church which was a shame. But pictures were available to purchase.

During the Fuerteventura Grand Tour and the Flavors of Fuerteventura we passed through Betancuria, the former capital of all of the Canary Islands. The village is very beautiful and romantic and has the only Michelin recommended restaurant Casa Santa Maria on the island. Another place worth visiting is the Iglesia de la Inmaculada Concepcion – the Church of Immaculate Conception.... More

This is an interesting stop off whilst touring the island. The town has some interesting shops and a walk around is well worth it for the views.

Spent half an hour here on a coach trip. It's a really nice place to spend time in. Some places are a bit touristy but Try to go by car so you can stay longer. There are some nice shops and resturants to enjoy.

So as regular tourist we went to Betancuria. The small modest church was ok and not an issue spending 1.50 euro for the admission. Next to the church is a small restaurant and building why old cheese making equipment are there and a small shop. For 6 euros you can enter this area with also included 2 x 10 min... More
