The shopping areas in Fuerteventura's capital
There are three essential places to visit when spending a day shopping in Puerto del Rosario, Fuerteventura's capital, located on the island’s east coast. Firstly, the traffic-free street of Primero de Mayo offers a pleasant environment to walk around; León y Castillo, the main shopping street, is home to shops for all tastes and finally the Las Rotondas shopping centre offers all the latest trends. Do some shopping in the city’s peaceful centre and whilst there discover the sculpture route, dotted around its corners and squares.
Souvenirs and shopping on León y Castillo and Primero de Mayo
The monument to harmony marks the beginning of the shopping tour of the centrally located Calle Leon y Castillo. The long street is lined with perfume shops, Chinese bazaars, book shops, lingerie shops and high-street fashion, which alternate with the bars and cafés that lead up to the Primero de Mayo. The city's only pedestrian street is wide and adorned with trees and pretty terraces. Stop and have a coffee somewhere like the Triana Kiosk, which also sells souvenirs. For those who prefer to buy local hand-made cheeses, Tetir is open throughout the day.More information
