La Oliva

I paid a visit to Fuerteventura's historic centre of government, La Oliva, this morning.

La Oliva is inland, beside the village of Villaverde.

In the town centre is the 18th century church,where there is a colourful pulpit.

The Colonels' House, La Casa de Los Coroneles, stands on the edge of the town.

Alas, Monday is the only day of the week when it is closed; so I was slightly disappointed to miss getting in.

The Colonels were the military governors of the island till about 1870.
