According to historians, Fuerteventura was already populated before King Juba II of Mauritania in 40 B.C. He took the initiative to increase the population of these islands. In 1,402, with the permission of King Henry III of Castile, Jean De Bethencourt and Gadifer de la Salle began the conquest of the archipelago, but it was not until 1404 when they achieved their first settlement in Fuerteventura. At that time the island was divided into the Maxorata and Jandía kingdoms, divided by a great wall, whose fragment is currently known as La Pared de Jandía. Finally, the island was conquered in 1,405.
Fuerteventura is known for its beautiful white sand beaches and its unique landscapes due to its volcanic origin.

In Puerto del Rosario, very close to the Town Hall and the courts, the Unamuno House-Museum is located very close to our apartments scattered around the capital, some of which are located next to the Maritime Port, from where the boats leave for the Isla de Lobos, and others next to the circulation, near the Playa Blanca.
Other places close to our apartments are the Natural Park and the Corralejo Marina, the Buenaventura Castle.
A curious fact is that in Fuerteventura there are four of the eight species of sea turtle in the world, as we can see it is a unique place full of life that you cannot miss.
