Guide to the towns and villages of Antigua,Fuerteventura

Hide description

Antigua is situated in the Eastern centre of Fuerteventura, extensive plains with farmhouses and mills can be seen here. Basaltic-coloured landscapes are the main characteristics of its surroundings. The largest part of the vegetation is concentrated on its valleys and gullies, where you will experience a feeling of pure peace and calm. There are three protected natural spaces: Mapaís Grande Natural Monument, Cuchillos de Vigán Natural Monument and Caldera de Gairía Natural Monument, which prove the volcanic origin of the island.

There is plenty to do here. In addition to numerous shops, bars, cafés and restaurants, Caleta de Fuste is home to a multi-screen cinema (films are in Spanish), and a bowling alley. Antigua stands out as the capital of Majorera crafts, where embroidery, openwork, basket weaving, ceramics, wood working etc are activities that form part of its people's roots, and that highlight the traditional character of the locals. The celebration of the 'Insular Crafts Fair' stands out. It takes place during the first fortnight of May and is where the majority of the island's craftspeople meet up to show off the richness of their products. An ideal place to get to know the municipality's and the whole island's traditions is the Craft Centre at Molina de Antigua, where the visitor can find fantastic examples of Majorera crafts.

An array of sporting facilities are available on the beaches, such as kite boarding, surfing, windsurfing and volleyball. Many boat trips and excursions are available along with camel rides.
