Puerto del Rosario
The main town of Fuerteventura, Puerto del Rosario on the western side of the island was once called Puerto de Cabras ('port of the goats'), and even today it is said that goats outnumber people in this whitewashed town. Only recently capitalising on the tourist trade, the streets in charming Puerto del Rosario have been resurfaced and the harbour promenade rebuilt. The main street provides some good souvenir shops and the old harbour area features some attractive examples of Canarian architecture. The home of exiled poet Miguel de Unamuno, which has been turned into a museum, is situated in the harbour area.
