Museo del Grano La CillaVisitors to Fuerteventura will probably be surprised to learn that the island was once said to be the 'Granary of the Canary Islands'. Poor land management and over-grazing have contributed to the semi-desert landscape that we see today.
The Museo del Grano La Cilla houses an exhibition of old images and farm implements illustrating traditional grain farming techniques on the Island. The building itself (la Casa de la Cilla) dates back to 1819.
The Museum is not easy to find, since signposting is non-existent. It is located on Calle Orilla, which is opposite the Iglesia de La Oliva.
