After these energetic vacations, we want to share with you a bit of history of our islands and our culture. To make the mind travel to another era of our culture.
We all know the incredible beaches of Fuerteventura, but our dear neighbor has great surprises inside. We talk about the mills and mills that we can still find on the island.
We go back to the 18th and 19th centuries. Where the function of the mills played a fundamental role in the daily life of the Canaries. In an era where livestock, fishing and agriculture constituted the vast majority of trades. The activities around the mills and mills were intense.
In Fuerteventura we find a great heritage in terms of conservation of these structures. Getting to name 23 mills and mills as BIC (Cultural Interest Asset) by the Canary Islands Government.
In recent years there has been a boost by the authorities of the island, restoring up to 15 of these buildings that both represent our culture. Getting to establish them as a tourist claim and promote in this way the way of life of our ancestors (and not so ancestors).
These 15 mills and mills have been added to those already established as a Site of Cultural Interest and tourist routes and routes are being established to make their dissemination and knowledge easier to know.
