Preserving the Taro de Teguerey
Radio Sintonia:

The Taro de Teguerey will be restored, preserved and protected by the Cabildo de Fuerteventura after the serious damage suffered.

The Cabildo de Fuerteventura has approved the start of the restoration, conservation and protection works in the Taro de Teguerey, a property located in the municipality of Tuineje, after the serious damage suffered in the last episodes of rains and storms that have affected the structure of "this important and unique piece of Fuerteventura history", as described by the president of the insular administration, Sergio Lloret.

The beginning of these works will be possible thanks to the Decree of subsidiary execution by the Cabildo before "the impossibility of notifying and therefore requiring the property in a reliable way to comply with the duty of conservation of the property".
A measure that, as reported by President Sergio Lloret, will allow the insular institution to take "actions aimed at preventing further deterioration or compromising its existence, in that commitment of the insular institution to guarantee the preservation of the Historical Heritage of Fuerteventura ".
On January 24, the Heritage Inspectorate went to the property with the head of Service of the Department of Cultural Heritage and the technician of the Infrastructure Service of the Island Corporation, being able to verify the "serious state of deterioration" in which the installation was.
With the north and west walls "totally collapsed", the report cites, and the serious situation of the south wall "barefoot and inclined" and "whose collapse could cause very serious consequences", the technicians consider that there is an "eminent danger of total collapse of the building".
Thus, and in accordance with current legislation, the Cabildo de Fuerteventura would have been empowered to take precautionary measures for the protection and conservation of the protected property, acting ex officio in order to avoid further damage and the possible collapse of the installation. It has also been transferred that the same administrative decree necessary for the execution of the works already underway for the restoration of the Taro, warns of the legal consequences that the neglect of patrimonial properties of these characteristics could have for the owners, which could lead to the forced expropriation of the goods.
In parallel, the Cabildo de Fuerteventura has informed, "we will continue with the file for the acquisition so that it becomes part of the public heritage of Fuerteventura".

Radio Sintonia:

The Cabildo has acted ex officio to restore Taro de Teguerey after the last episodes of rain.

In a statement issued by the Cabildo de Fuerteventura it is reported that the president of the insular institution, Sergio Lloret, visited today, Thursday, March 2, the works that the Insular Administration is carrying out in the patrimonial building of Taro de Teguerey, after having urgently approved a Decree of Subsidiary Execution that has allowed him to act ex officio, Given the impossibility of contacting the owners of the property and the danger of collapse that it presented after the last episodes of rains and storms experienced on the island.


An appeal to the population

During the visit, the Insular councilor wanted to make an "appeal" to the majorera population to "provide any data" on the current owners of the structure, in order to be able to carry out the consensual acquisition file initiated by the Institution in order for the Taro to become part of the Public Heritage of Fuerteventura.

If this contact is not achieved, according to Lloret, and in order to guarantee its care and conservation, "we will initiate the corresponding file of forced expropriation."

 "We have to continue moving forward so that these fundamental elements of our history become part of the public heritage that, without a doubt, is the best way to guarantee their conservation for the future," said the president.

 In addition to Violeta Díaz, first deputy mayor of the municipality of Tuineje, where the patrimonial property is located; neighbors of the town and technicians of the Cabildo, in the visit have been present representatives of the association 'More Ruins than Cain', precursors of the file launched at the end of 2021 by the Insular Institution for "the acquisition and rehabilitation of both this and other historical and patrimonial pieces of the island, as is the case of the Casas de la Florida", as Lloret recalled.

In the case of these, explained the island president, an agreement has already been reached and the acquisition has been approved by the Island Government Council. However, in the case of the acquisition of Taro de Teguerey, the procedure has been slowed down because the Institution has not been able to locate the owners of the property.

The deterioration of the rains

"And in the middle of this process came the rains, which caused the fall of one of the walls," the president recalled.

 On January 24, the Heritage Inspectorate went to the building together with the head of Service of the Department of Cultural Heritage and the technician of the Infrastructure Service of the Island Corporation.

 After the visit, a report of Heritage Valuation of Taro de Teguerey was prepared that confirmed the high value of the structure, as an example of the industrial architecture of Fuerteventura. In the same report, the urgency of undertaking restoration and structural consolidation work to guarantee the conservation of the Taro was stressed.

Given that the level of protection of "this unique piece of majorera history" is integral, it was necessary to carry out exceptional actions, in accordance with the Law of Cultural Heritage of the Canary Islands.

Actions to restore the property

In accordance with this, the actions are being carried out respecting all the elements of heritage value present in the structure. In addition, the use of materials and construction systems appropriate to the specific characteristics of the Taro has been taken into account.

The Taro de Teguerey, made of stone, mud and lime, was built in the early eighteenth century, according to oral sources. "Its exceptionality lies in its size, with almost one hundred square meters of capacity," says the Heritage report, "and for having a well inside, now padded or 'entullado'."
 "The ultimate goal is for this piece of our history to become part of the public heritage of Fuerteventura, the public heritage of the majoreros," said the president of the Cabildo, Sergio Lloret.
