La Ruta del Agua
The Councilor for Tourism convened the Local Action Committee to schedule upcoming actions aimed at creating this new tourist itinerary.

The municipality of La Oliva continues taking steps forward in the creation of a new tourist itinerary that allows to rescue the historical, ethnographic and traditional values associated with the culture of water in the north of Fuerteventura.

'The Water Route' is the project with which the City Council of La Oliva, from the Department of Tourism, participates in the transnational program ECO-TUR, and has allowed the start of works to prepare an interpretation center by rehabilitating the Poison and Redondo reservoirs, in the town of La Oliva.

The Councilor for Tourism, Marcelino Umpiérrez, summoned the members of the Local Action Committee of the ECO-TUR project in La Oliva to monitor the state of execution of the works and continue with the actions planned for the implementation of La Ruta of the water.

"The interpretation center in the Aljibe del Veneno and the Aljibe Redondo is undoubtedly the main action of the project. It is an investment of almost 95,000 euros co-financed between the City Council and the European Interreg Regional Development Fund, but it is also necessary to carry out many other actions to make The Water Route a reality to offer tourists very soon, "said Marcelino Umpiérrez.

The tourist itinerary already has its own image-level design, with an informative brochure and a map with the heritage values integrated in the route. However, Umpiérrez explained, "physical signage and many other aspects at the promotion level still have to be worked on, and in this sense the contributions of the Local Action Committee are fundamental."

The Water Route, a project framed in the European ECO-TUR program, proposes a visit to the main values that are found in the surroundings of La Oliva capital, architectural, heritage or ethnographic complexes that have to do with the use of water, such as reservoirs, fountains, wells or gavias, in addition to the main museum values of the area.

In the Aljibes del Veneno and Redondo, in addition to restoring these buildings of heritage interest, the objective is to show the hydraulic devices that were used in Fuerteventura and La Oliva for the collection, storage, distribution and use of water, and explain to the visitor In what ways the use of water has influenced the landscape and the idiosyncrasy of the majoreros over the centuries.
