Guide to the towns, and villages of Tuineje, Fuerteventura

Tuineje is situated in the south east of the island. It is bordered on the south and at the west by Pájara and Antigua to the north. Farmland dominates most of this municipality, Tuineje's gastronomy is simple but very high quality, and has known how to make the most of resources the land and sea offers. A highly prized tomato is grown on this land, it has a sublime flavour and has one of its main producers in Tuineje. The figure of the Majorera goat dominates the island landscape and can be seen in fine dining. Not only its meat but its milk, with which the acclaimed Majorera cheese is made, are highly valued for their flavour and quality. The real stars of Tuineje's local cooking is the produce from the sea, a municipality of fishermen par excellence.

Tuineje is home to much exquisite architecture. Los Molinal Visitor Centre, located in a traditional house in Tiscamanita, offers information on milling methods used throughout history. You will be able to see not only the mill functioning but the products of the milling. La Entallada Lighthouse, built in 1953, is architectually quaint and unique on the Archipelago.

This was declared anArea of Ecological Sensitivity and a Special Protection Area for Birds.

The Gran Tarajal Lime Kiln, built in 1953 and of civil architecture, is considered one of the largest on the island. La Casa del Maestro, an emblematic building of Tiscamanita, dates to the end of the 19th century. It is the centre for the Manuel Velázquez Cabrera y del Ranco de Ánimas Foundation. San Miguel Arcángel Church, has been declared a property of Cultural Interest and dates back to the 17th century.
