Showcasing Tegueste traditions of yesteryear
Visitors to Los Zamorano in Tegueste are to be given an even closer insight into farming methods of yesteryear and ancient craftsmanship.
This lovely finca already hosts numerous events and is a much-praised showcase for traditional agriculture, with students involved in growing rotating crops, including cereals, vegetables and fruit.
There is also a wide selection of native plants and trees, as well as floral corridors of herbs and Canary wild plants. A unique feature is a jogging track through the landscaped area which is used by local people and athletes alike as it is open to the general public.
Now, Tegueste council is delighted to announce that the first phase of a new interpretation centre has been completed.
The project will turn the spotlight on the cultural heritage and conservation of the town, transforming eight of the 12 rooms at the casa. There will be a reception, livestock centre, bodega, meeting room, agricultural room, kitchen and offices. It is hoped to complete information panels within the next two months. It will also be possible to hold various functions such as special events and exhibitions.
The idea is to show how life was in Tegueste in bygone years although in some places in the municipality, these ancient traditions still survive today.
A trip out to the finca is an interesting day out (take your running shoes for the jogging track!) You can keep up to date with developments on www.tegueste.org
