  Further pedestrianisation in Corralejo
Posted by: TamaraEnLaPlaya - Yesterday, 11:17 PM - Forum: Travel information - boats, cars, cabs, harbours & roads - No Replies

Once again just as the busy tourist season approaches major works are going to start on the lower part of the main street in Corralejo:

from RTVAC

The City Council of La Oliva informs that the road traffic will be interrupted during the works, in the stretch of Nuestra Señora del Carmen included between Anzuelo Street and the already pedestrianized area. Pedestrian traffic will be maintained at all times

The Cabildo de Fuerteventura begins this week the works of the third and final phase of the Open Commercial Areas project of Corralejo, which will be developed in the section of the Nuestra Señora del Carmen Avenue included between Anzuelo Street and the already pedestrianized area.

The City Council of La Oliva informs the merchants, neighbors and businessmen of the area that traffic will remain closed during the works, but not the pedestrian traffic, which will remain open throughout the project.

The Corporation and the Cabildo apologize for the inconvenience that this project could cause, valuing that the works are necessary to improve the accessibility in the area and favor its commercial use, through a semi-pedestrian transit formula that has demonstrated its good results in the two sections already reformed.

The works will make it possible to equate the 150-meter stretch to reform the criteria already adapted in phases 1 and 2 of the Open Commercial Areas Plan of Corralejo, creating a single semi-pedestrian platform at the same level between the sidewalk and the roadway, adopting accessibility criteria , and installing urban furniture, gardening areas and new lighting. This project has a deadline of five months and an investment of around 600,000 euros.

Access and traffic

Traffic in the area affected by the works will be interrupted during the execution of the project in the stretch of Nuestra Señora del Carmen between the roundabout of the intersection with Anzuelo street, and the Battleship Spain street (next change of plate from this street to Antonia Morera Rodríguez).

From the headquarters of the Local Police of La Oliva, it is reported that they will be able to access the area of the works, through the streets Juan Sebastián Elcano and Acorazado Spain, Citizen Security vehicles, residents in the area, taxis , the vehicles of up to 3,500 kilos for loading and unloading, and the users of the gas station.

Currently integrated by more than 150 musicians, the Canary Youth Orchestra is a project of the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sports of the Government of the Canary Islands aimed at promoting the formation and orchestral practice of young musicians from the Islands, under the artistic direction of Víctor Pablo Pérez. Its premiere before the public took place in January 2017 with New Year's concerts, celebrating since then 30 in all the islands, in addition to a tour of nine concerts in different cities of China, with which the training took its first international leap.

Some of his musicians also participated in the last edition of the Canary Music Festival, accompanying the Cadaqués Orchestra with the great pianist Joaquín Achúcarro.

  The law in Spain?
Posted by: Si Tie - 13-06-2019, 03:52 PM - Forum: General Discussions - No Replies

How does the law in Spain work are you guilty until proven otherwise if someone makes an allegation?
Is the seriousness offence a factor?  Does the judge have the power to over rule the law?

I was planning to book a 2 bedroom villa for next May but somebody who recently reviewed the place indicated that the admittance of day visitors for 20 Euros caused overcrowding. Somebody else wrote that they bought a day pass but stayed on for the evening entertainment as well. I don't have a problem with day passes providing they are properly managed/limited and don't attract undesirables. Please don't think I'm anti-social, it's just that I want to make sure "it isn't heading in the wrong direction " before I book.

If anybody has stayed there in the past few months, I would be very grateful if they shared their experience.

Posted by: TamaraEnLaPlaya - 12-06-2019, 01:21 AM - Forum: Things to do on the island - Replies (3)

The Cabildo finalizes the execution of the musealization project of the Archaeological Museum of Fuerteventura, in Betancuria

The new space has more than 2,000 square meters for the exhibition of the island's pre-Hispanic history

The Cabildo de Fuerteventura is about to complete the execution of the musealization project of the Archaeological Museum of Fuerteventura, in Betancuria. The acting president of the Cabildo de Fuerteventura, Marcial Morales, and the acting mayor of Betancuria, Marcelino Sardinia, made a visit to the works that are being carried out in this new museum space that will be held on Tuesday, June 11. pieces, instruments and aboriginal remains of the prehispanic population.

The space has more than 2,000 for exhibition, as well as spaces for dissemination activities for schoolchildren and for research, among others. "It will be a living museum that will summarize the new investigations that are carried out in the Betancuria Convention and in the islet of Lobos, which are putting on the table knowledge that until recently they did not have about life in Fuerteventura before the Conquest "said Marcial Morales. "With this museum the Island will have two museum spaces to present the pre-Hispanic history of Fuerteventura and the centuries after the Conquest, in the museum that will be in the Casa de los Coroneles with a project from the Government of the Canary Islands."

For his part, Marcelino Sardinia said that the Insular Archaeological Museum "will be a great step forward for Betancuria for the municipality and for the people who visit us".

The building is distributed on three levels. The lower level, consists of an exhibition hall, the workshop and warehouse. The intermediate level consists of an exhibition hall and an assembly hall. The upper level consists of a temporary exhibition room, the cafeteria and the terrace

The ways of life of the old settlers of Fuerteventura, as well as the role that the woman had, the burial systems and the games are part of the Archaeological Museum exhibition that will bring visitors to the pre-Hispanic history of the Island.

Link to article in RTVAC:

Not sure when it /they actually open to the public, if anyone knows, or is going through Betancuria or visiting Casa de los Coroneles in La Oliva and can gather some info to add to this post it would be most helpful.

Hi, are any other forumers growing orchids out here? Either indoor or outside. I have 6 Phals and a Vanda at present, all indoors, and have faced a few challenges! It would be good to discuss their culture in this environment with another chid enthusiast.
Thanks in hope.
