La Oliva Living History Route

From Puerto del Rosario to La Oliva
The island of Fuerteventura is an appealing tourist destination appreciated world-over for its long beaches with their golden sand and clear, turquoise water. In the municipality of La Oliva, 23 kilometres north-west of the capital, Puerto del Rosario, you can take part in the Los Coroneles Route. This living history tour of five properties aims to reveal and enhance the heritage of this town in the north of Fuerteventura. It starts from the church square in La Oliva at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. every Tuesday and Friday in four languages (Spanish, English, French and German).
Strolling through the history of a town
For the Los Coroneles Route, you have to purchase a single voucher for admission to the five monuments that form this historic walk. Along the way through the oldest streets of La Oliva, the Los Coroneles Living History Route visits the Casa de La Cilla (Grain Museum), La Candelaria Church, the Casa de Los Coroneles, Casa Mané Canarian Art Centre and the Casa del Coronel – now a market selling traditional craft and produce.
Remembrance of political and economic power
he theme of the Los Coroneles Living History Route, which is acted out by actors and extras, is based around the "Coroneles de Milicias", figures who were an essential element of life in La Oliva in the 18th and 19th centuries. Due to their massive military, legal, political and financial power, the colonels became real lords of the land in this area of the island of Fuerteventura.

Sustainability
Sostenibilidad
- Never leave waste of any type lying around, including cigarette butts. Leftover food leads to a proliferation of rats and wild cats, which pose a serious threat to the fauna.
- Use the waste- paper baskets and, insofar as possible, separate and place your recycling waste in the appropriate containers.
- Do not throw any waste or other objects into the sea.
- Respect the animals. Do not bother them or feed them. If you see an injured specimen, you can call the emergency number: 112. Do not pick flowers or plants.
- Do not pick up or take away stones or any other item from the natural environment. And do not move them to pile them up into sadly famous 'towers'.
- In natural spaces and at viewpoints, do not leave the trail or the spaces designated for people to be in.
- Respect and look after the area's historic and cultural heritage, along with the public furniture and items for visitors, such as information panels or telescopes and binoculars.
