  • La Oliva, this building is worth a stop. Perhaps, is it desirable to give some preliminary info to put this House in historical context in order to give a little more interest in this visit. The surrounding landscape is especially nice (well, the road FV207 leading to Antigua from La Oliva guard this beauty)

  • When you see the pictures, you have very different ideas. I've imagined way too much and was so disappointed

  • The Casa de los Coroneles in La Oliva is an imposing structure in the Canarian style already from the outside and is in my opinion the most important secular building of the island. The two-storey residence looks like a Fort with your turrets. Is too bad not much to visit inside (ca 40 rooms) of the Manor House. The "courtyard" could be made more something beautiful. Otherwise is the Casa de los Coroneles freshly renovated (King Juan Carlos had it not take to reopen the building in November 2006). For Kurzweil is during a visit to each case taken care of.

  • Explained in the House Museum mode of organization and management of the lands. Very interesting to know the social model and Fuerteventura terrritorial until the first half of the 20TH century

  • Contained poor (pictures on the walls are the original sheets) and uninteresting about the colonels that ruled the island for more than 200 years. It is not worth paying entry.

  • Excellent restoration of an emblematic building of La Oliva. Always with good exhibition to see

  • Best if you go with children is feeding the squirrels that are around the Museum
