Climb the peak at La Atalayita
The settlement of La Atalayita is in the Valle de Pozo Negro, in the east of Fuerteventura. This archaeological site dates back to the times of the island’s first natives, called ‘mahos’ or ‘majos’. Nowadays, the Visitor Centre allows us to enter constructions that are over six centuries old. It is exciting to discover the history of this settlement, which was used as a night-time refuge, shelter from the elements and somewhere to hide from attacks. We recommend climbing the peak to get an extraordinary panoramic view of the settlement.
Exhibition area where you can discover its history
La Atalayita provides 1200 m2 of genuine history. A large area made up of over 115 constructions, in addition to an exhibition area where visitors are able to discover what life was like in the settlement throughout history. We recommend picking up one of the leaflets available at the facilities that specify and explain the different types of constructions you are going to visit – very useful when taking the route around the settlement and learning all about its history in depth.
