Antigua, also known as Castillo, is a village and district in central Fuerteventura, southwest of the island’s capital, Puerto del Rosario. Located 15 minutes from Fuerteventura airport, Antigua is a popular holiday resort with easy access to the island’s main attractions, upscale resorts and palm lined man-made beach.
One thing that defines Antigua’s countryside and cultural heritage is its working windmills scattered across the lush green landscape. Historic buildings such as the Majorero Cheese Museum and Mill Craft Centre in the middle of town are a perfect example of traditional Canarian architecture. Learn about the island’s cheesemaking culture while the kids will love milking the lifelike mechanical goat! Discover how they extract salt from the sea water at The Salt Museum at the entrance of Salinas del Carmen village, just 15 minutes away.
Antigua is slowly being modernised, boasting some lovely holiday resorts and recently, a golf course and shopping area with plenty of places to refresh and grab a bite after a long day sightseeing. The beautiful stretch of white sand and clear waters of the small and peaceful Costa Antigua resort on the east coast is a paradise for sun-worshippers and water sports enthusiasts. If, however, you’re looking for the perfect balance of adventure and relaxation, then look no further than Caleta de Fuste with its picturesque Costa Caleta beach, just a 15-minute drive away.
