Fuerteventura – Centro de Interpretacion Los Molinos

The Centro de Interpretacion Los Molinas or the wind mill museum is located in Tiscamanitain a street parallel to the main street. We already purchased our (combined) ticket when we visited the Salinas del Carmen.

There is no parking space directly in front of the museum. But not far from the museum you can find a couple of parking spaces for your car, so sou will have to walk less than 100 m.

Again here is some additional information

In the museum you will find information about the local wind mills on the island and of course about gofio. Gofio are cerials which are roasted before being ground and very traditional for the island. When you enter the museum you can try some sweets made from gofio, sugar and oil. Sweet, with an nutty taste and of course no really low on calories, but quite tasty. The exhibition was quite interesting, too. Again, something regarding the islands itself and their origin and like in the saltwork museum a video with an interesting projection. The projection was here a wall of sacks use for corn and they showed a video of how the sweets were made that we tasted at the ticket counter.

Unfortunately I haven’t taken any photos except of the title picture.

In general I can really recommend this museum as well as the other two I described in my other posts.
