Las Palmas
Puerto del Rosario
Puerto del Rosario The Essential
This large sleepy town is first and foremost a good base for exploring the island of Fuerteventura. The handful of Figurative and Abstract sculptures on the seafront and Calle León y Castillo, around the church Nuestra Señora del Rosario, are the main things to see. The Centro de Arte Juan Ismael hosts contemporary art exhibitions and on Saturdays a mercado agrario sells crafts and organic produce from the island. A long beach, Playa Blanca, lies to the south of the town.
