La Alcogida Ecomuseum May 16th 2019
To visit La Alcogida is to experience the way of life of Fuerteventuran peasants over the last few decades. Stone houses, whitewashed and with gabled roofs, welcome the visitor to the La Alcogida Eco-Museum, located in the village of Tefía in Puerto del Rosario. Its roofs are made of “torta” (a mix of water, earth and straw) which, with the advent of winter rains, is what gives the walls their ancient appearance. In summer the walls are repainted to once again display their pure and perfect white.
Opening Hours Tuesdays to Saturdays from 10:00 to 18:00 (Closed Sundays and Mondays)
During May it’s quite warm in Fuerteventura with a daily average temperature of 21°C, a daily average maximum of 24°C and a daily average minimum of 17°C. The average sea temperature is 19°C, the average rainfall for the month is 1mm, average humidity is 65% with an average of 9 daily sunshine hours.
Don't be deceived by these low temperatures, they're recorded in the shade so if you're in the sun out of the wind it gets very hot so don't forget the sun protection.
In the evenings it’s a good idea to take a scarf, fleece or a light jacket especially if you're outside in the wind.
