Fuerteventura. La Oliva, Las Playitas, Gran Tarajal, Caleta de Fuste. P.1.

We went in La Oliva because this town was mentioned in a guide book. There is some castle or manor house, and the church you can look at, and even a museum.
First, we stopped in 

Casa de Los Coroneles

.
Notice the mountain on the left - it looks like a volcano, doesn't it? And mountains are everywhere.

Unfortunately, we didn't get in the museum - it has been under restoration for a while and they don't know when it will be finished...
Conclusion - it's not worth going there because of this museum.
And in general - after looking at surroundings, I really couldn't understand how people live there?

Well, we went to another museum.
Although, it's not exactly the museum, or it's absolutely not a museum. Rather, it is something like a gallery. But there's a fee to enter. We decided to go at least to this one.
Oh, I do not know... It's a strange place. It would be ridiculous if it was not sad.
Look, what greets you there at the entrance...

There are different goats, sheep... and something unknown...

As for the paintings, there were a few of them with motives of 

Fuerteventura

.

Although artists often have a vivid imagination, that's why they are artists - I almost did not see such green places on the island.

Maybe, such places exist somewhere, but they are absolutely not typical for the 

island

.
For example, this is one of the greenest places I saw there. Not a tourist place, of course...

And here are several other pictures from there...

So, we visited such museum-gallery. Why we had to pay money (though it's cheap) is unclear.
The church was also mentioned in the guide book.
We visited it.

There is also a store that is called a museum for some reason.
Museum of aloe. Hmm... we didn't go there.
Here's a picture of the store.

In fact, I bought some cosmetics with aloe there...
And I'd like to show you several other places. The first place is Las Playitas. Those who exercise and can not imagine their vacation on the island without fitness equipment will like this place.
We stopped there on our way.

Here's the beach.
28fuerteventura-la-oliva-las-playitas-gran-tarajal-caleta-de-fuste.jpg
With black sand...

And beautiful waves.

You can play golf there,

Swim, 
34fuerteventura-la-oliva-las-playitas-gran-tarajal-caleta-de-fuste.jpg
Or just do morning exercises.
35fuerteventura-la-oliva-las-playitas-gran-tarajal-caleta-de-fuste.jpg
Look, everyone has something to do there.

And for slackers, there are only such lounge chairs.
