    Took the bus from Caleta de fuste, cost 1.40 euros pp. Very informative reception, great museum showing the history of the site and others across the Canaries. They are working on site to do repairs but would love to come back and ‘scrape’ ‘harvest’ or ‘make’ some salt myself! A very nice morning spent there

    Add this as a brief stop off when touring the island. See how people lived in this desolate area hundreds of years ago.

    We came as an adult family group. The museum is really good value for money, only a few euros entry. Interactive and interesting, good for a few hours on a not so nice day. Cactus garden surprisingly impressive too

    The art in the gallery displayed a few artists. Reasonably priced and a wonderful wander along corridors. The garden itself was not the best, but underneath in the gallery , I really enjoyed.

    This Windmill is in the grounds of the Cheese Museum, T/A map position is wrong (will try to change, but normally request is ignored)

    It is fascinating to imagine people actually building & using this Windmill.
    I like to look at the design & workmanship, & to think they built it without modern machinery.
    Don't know if it has been refurbished, but it is very good condition.
    Well worth a visit.

    Thursday 26th November and we we driving from Pajara to La Pared and we were very pleasantly surprised to find this unusual Mirador along the way.

    We made are way up, the paved pathway and steps, to the Mirador, which took about 10 minutes. Initially the stone pathway is a gentle incline but becomes a sharp slope towards the top. There were small solar lights set into the path, which would be use at night to guide visitors to the top.

    On the pathway up to the astronomical view point, there is a small lookout area, with the statue of 2 goats and a stone star set into the ground. From here there are some incredible views across to the Cardon Mountain.

    It was extremely windy when we visited and rain was threatening so basically it was a quick up and down. Even though the weather was not that brilliant when we were here, we were treated to some incredible views across the Island.

    This is a unique Mirador as its  visitors would normally come here at night, with their telescopes and viewing equipment  to view the sky and all its treasures.

    The pathway, its small low walls and other structures have been constructed with an orange/brown stone which compliments the natural landscape.

    There are numerous information boards around giving details of where to look and what can be seen.

    There were some fittings for viewing equipment in place but the equipment had been removed.

    We wanted to visit this place because my partner is passionate about Aloe Vera , but our visit was ruined by the woman at the counter , very unfriendly and inpatient , we didn’t feel welcomed at all , in fact personally couldn’t wait to get out of there , a real shame as there where some interesting things to see .

    Thursday 12th November and we visited Faro el Toston. The lighthouse is situated on the northwestern coast of the island near to the village of El Cotillo.

    Along side the lighthouse there is a small Museum, Museo de la Pesca Tradicional. The artefacts, pictures and information tell the history of fishing on Fuerteventura.

    When we visited access to the Museum was restricted to 3 visitors at a time, in accordance with COVID 19 safety measures.

    There were people in the Museum and others were queueing to go in, so we chose not to join the queue.

    There was a small entrance fee of €3.

    The restaurant was closed and did not look as if it had been open for a considerable while.

    nice small museum displaying the traditional way of making gofio. We were greeted by a very nice and enthusiastic girl, who gave us a short tour and a sample of a gofio sweet after the visit. worth a visit.

    The museum is partially open air and reflects back on the traditional way of living. Not particularly overwhelming, but then again there is probably not much more than that to show on the history of the island. The multimedia show (indoor) was interesting, but certainly not a must-do.

    This shop is closed now. You can order or arrange for an appointment via their Facebook page. We only came to know when we was standing in front of the store in El Cotillo.

    This museum is situated in La Ampuyenta, which is on the FV20, between Antigua and Casillas del Angel.

    The Doctor Mena House Museum is also known as Casa de los Alfaro. It is the former home of one of La Ampuyenta's most famous residents, Doctor Tomás Antonio de San Pedro Mena Mesa, known as Doctor Mena.

    He was born in the town on 20th February 1802 and died on July 10, 1868, aged 66, in Santa Cruz de Tenerife where he was buried.

    He was a great benefactor to the Town, he did not charge for treating the sick. He also tried to create a free hospital in the Town.

    This house, where Doctor Mena lived, has been turned into a museum in homage to the Doctor. Visitors can see the rooms where patients waited to see and receive treatment from the Doctor. Medical equipment and instruments are on display.

    Were went by here twice, on separate occasions, and  the museum was closed. We assumed that, like other attractions that were closed, that closure was due to COVID 19  restrictions and safety measures.

    Would certainly visit here if passing by, would not make a special trip to visit.

    The combination of an array of artists showing and selling their work, a music group to enliven the atmosphere, set in the chill-out vibe of El Cotillo. Worthy of your time, and perfect for a local drink and dinner afterwards.
