Casa-Museo de Unamuno

Reviewed By BargeeGirl - West Sussex, United Kingdom

Eventually got to visit this tiny, but interesting museum.It is set in a 19th century building and tells the story of Don Miguel de Unamuno. It is free to enter and the lady gave us an excellent English translation leaflet. It is not huge, so only takes around 15/20 mins to tour, but well worth a visit. Make sure you also visit the church opposite.

Rather near the main road, but a lovely beach. Stop for a quick dip going to or from the airport, but not a destination in itself

Ecomuseo La Alcogida

Reviewed By HallyHoHo - Dublin, Ireland

Our visit to the Eco-museum was shortish as we arrived late in the evening. In addition, two of the houses were closed to the public. Nevertheless, we had an enjoyable stroll through history and got a good picture of how people lived 60-80 years ago. However, we needed an overview of the village and the project .. .

Hafen Puerto del Rosario, Fuerteventura

Reviewed By MarpleTraveller - Marple, United Kingdom

A very quiet city, the sea views are pleasant. There area number of small bars along the sea front. There is an interesting sculpture park with a number of bronzes showing the history of the post area and Fuertaventura generally. There is a sailing school on the front and we spent an entertaining hour watching youngsters learn to kayak and sail Mirror dinghies.

Ermita San Pedro de Alcantara

Reviewed By Island-Seeker0 - La Oliva, Spain

Just over the road from the Mena House Museum at la Ampuyenta, is the old, Spanish-colonial church of St Peter of Alcantara, surrounded by its defensive walls (against attacks by Moorish slavers from North Africa) and ancient, gnarled trees. It's a picturesque spot and worth a quick look. But, oh that we could get inside! It's resolutely locked up with no notice as to where the keys can be obtained (logic - leaving them with the museum curator at the Mena House not 200 metres away, doesn't seem to apply!) So, no chance to see the apparently superb 18th century wall paintings so recently restored (at public expense) by the island council.
