Easy to miss, this is a real insight into how traditional Canarian families lived and worked 50-70 years ago. Walk around 5 homes and a farm. If you are lucky you will also see local artisans working on various crafts. Great value for money

We love this place - old houses to explore, gardens, crafts people at work and of course the animals - donkeys and camels. A beautiful AND educational visit.

An outdoor museum with houses representing how people here lived 100 years ago. It's quite cute and good to explore. There's a few goats and animals too. You are given a leaflet explaining what each house is.
