Arts and crafts and needlework in Fuerteventura
The centre of La Oliva, in northern Fuerteventura, has hidden gems well worth visiting if you're seeking a contrast to the island’s amazing beaches. And on Tuesday and Friday mornings there is an even greater incentive to visit the island centre of this well-known hub for coastal tourism: its market. Open from 10:00 to 14:00, you’ll find local produce, traditional needlework and embroidery and oil paintings of the island’s landscapes - just a few of the things that make it well worth a visit.
