POTTERY

In the art of pottery, as in love, patience and dedication are essential. When two pairs of hands meet over the clay, they shape not only a work of art but also their connection. Thus, piece by piece, they create lasting memories, forging a love as resilient and beautiful as the pottery itself.

In Corralejo you have several places to practice, but one of the best known is CERAMICI. 
In this place they give you guidance in creating a piece using fundamental ceramic techniques. In addition, they give you the opportunity to personalize it with slips, textures and reliefs.

LIGHTHOUSE

faroam.jpg

Touring the lighthouses of Fuerteventura is an original and romantic way to discover the geography of an island with more than 320 kilometers of coastline. And these constructions that shed light on the coastal waters always present great magnetism, whether due to their location in remote and beautiful places or because of all the stories that revolve around shipwrecks and the loneliness of the lighthouse keepers. Below we review the best lighthouses in Fuerteventura one by one:

Tostón: 

toston.jpg

In the northwest corner of Fuerteventura, the Tostón Lighthouse completes the triangle that signals navigation in the Bocaina Strait, next to the Pechiguera (Lanzarote) and Martiño (Islote de Lobos) lighthouses.

It is a must-visit enclave north of El Cotillo, as around it are the famous lagoons with crystal-clear waters protected by reefs, ideal for enjoying safe family bathing, and spectacular sunsets as the sun goes down. over the sea.

The Tostón Lighthouse reflects like no other the evolution of maritime signaling, by preserving the structures of the three lighthouses that were successively enabled. In the main building, the Museum of Traditional Fishing of Fuerteventura was set up. However, this center has opened to the public intermittently since its inauguration.

 Punta La Entallada

entall.jpg

Punta Jandía:

jand.jpg

It is a modern lighthouse and very far away in construction from the image that we normally associate with this type of buildings, as it has a “U” shaped plan and is composed of three cores made with lime and red pumice stone. The part that really acts as a lighthouse is the central one and barely reaches 12 meters high. However, this does not represent any inconvenience to perform its function, since the building stands on a cliff 200 meters high.

From that point you can admire unique panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean and the Cuchillos de Vigán, spectacular rock formations whose sharp appearance is due to the wear caused by erosion.

The Punta La Entallada lighthouse is located in the area of ​​the island closest to the African continent, with the Moroccan coast at a distance of approximately 100 kilometers.

This lighthouse, located at the southernmost end of the island of Fuerteventura. Built in 1864, its great attraction lies in the fact that it is located at the exact point where a land tongue ends, in a totally isolated volcanic landscape that faces the Atlantic Ocean.

Inside the building is the interpretation center of the Jandía Natural Park, where the geological characteristics, flora and fauna native to the Jandía peninsula are explained.

It also emphasizes the reasons why UNESCO declared Fuerteventura a Biosphere Reserve in 2009.

It can be accessed by car in approximately 40 minutes (22 kilometers) from the town of Morro Jable, although it would be advisable to make the trip in an all-terrain vehicle. There is also a 4×4 minibus that runs the route between this town and El Puertito, a small group of houses near the lighthouse where it is said that you can eat the best fish soup in Fuerteventura.

Morro Jable:

Faros-de-Fuerteventura.jpg

Still in the south of the island, the Morro Jable lighthouse is one of those that offers the easiest access, as it is located right on Matorral beach, a natural extension of four kilometers of white sand located in front of this town in the municipality of Bird.

However, the fact of being surrounded by an urban center and its modern aesthetics (it was built in 1996 with concrete) mean that it lacks the charm and beauty that those described above possess.

 San Martiño:

DJI_0170-2.webp

We leave for last this small lighthouse located north of the island of Lobos, a solitary rock that is located just over two kilometers from Corralejo and that is separated from Fuerteventura by a channel known as “El Río” or “Paso de Orchilla”. ”. To get to the islet it is necessary to take a ferry and tour the island following one of the two enabled trails. The most logical option is to take the outward route through one of them and return through the other, since there is hardly any difference in distance and thus you will be able to enjoy both paths (the one that goes along the coast and the one that crosses the islet by inside). Without a doubt, the landscape of Lobos Island will constitute a magnificent end point for this route through the best lighthouses in Fuerteventura.
