ROUTE OF THE MILLS

This is one of the most beautiful and interesting routes of Fuerteventura. Dare to go in its plains, in its barren valleys…

 

 

The interest of this route seems unquestionable; either from the tourist point of view or for the fact that it is the rescue of one of the elements that during many years have helped the local farmers in the difficult task of treating the grain that was so hard to get from the land.

 

It is interesting to point out how each one of the mills has special characteristics that identify them with its location.

 

Below is a list of places where these mills are located with a brief description of its special characteristics.
