The Colonel's Route

In one word: essential

The importance of los coroneles on the island goes back to the Spanish Crown's invasion of Fuerteventura during the 15th century. As there was a need to keep Fuerteventura under command and defend it from possible invasions by other neighbouring civilizations or pirate attacks, the Castilian army had to stay on the land permanently. This is why the important military authorities built and bought large houses and estates, which formed a new wealthy class on the island. In this way, Casa de los Coroneles is one of the essential buildings on Fuerteventura. In the heart of the village, La Oliva, the ruta de los coroneles will show you another five buildings of the same period and it will take you back in time, giving you the chance to discover an essential period, in order for you to understand the island's history.
