    On our visit to La Oliva, road of El Cotillo for dinner, we could only visit the Church. Everything else - the colonels route - was closed despite being in the middle of August and be slightly more than 6 o'clock. We arrived with the car - it was a Sun of Justice and high heat - up to the home of the colonels and we could only see it from the outside. I don't know if it is worth paying the entrance to visit.

    I expected a place with something more to show, although it was only a brochure with a map of the House and I was explaining where I was and what was in its time, but not received none of this. The entrance for residents is of 1 euro per person. If you would like to see squirrels, this is one of the places where you can find many of them.

    Located on the outskirts of the municipality of La Oliva, the home of the colonels is one of the most important pieces of the historic-artistic heritage of Fuerteventura. If long ago served as the official residence of the Colonel, it is now a House Museum, declared Bien de interés Cultural, tourism. Entry costs € 3. The main attraction is the building itself, its structure seen from outside, inside has an inner courtyard and little else. In short, do not have much to see inside, but is of the few cultural tours that you can do on the island of Fuerteventura (together with Betancuria). * Corralejo is a 20 min drive * * there is parking just opposite *

  • It's OK, free on Canaries day (30th May) which made it good value for money!
  • Nice but not particularly worth going out of your way for. Caught a cool exposition there.
  • What a dreamful place! History house amidst a beautiful mountain range...don't miss it!!!
  • Interesting historical place in the heart of Fuerteventura
  • Must see on Fuerteventura
