An event that ended on 30th June after the stage in the municipality of La Oliva.
For this first edition of the Ruta Insular de la Tapa, 59 businesses participated from Puerto del Rosario, 37 from Pájara, 32 from Antigua and Betancuria, 21 from Tuineje and 75 from La Oliva. Herrera Martel pointed out the importance of this type of event to bring dynamism to the local economies and add another attraction to the tourism offer of the Island, turning the island gastronomy into an added asset for people who visit Fuerteventura.
“La Oliva, that started the first municipal route in 2013, was the pioneer in this type of initiative and it is now the final phase for this first edition of the Island Route (Ruta Insular). The project, that started in March in Tuineje, went through the other municipalities with a fantastic result, thanks to the sponsors and the establishments that believed in this project since the beginning and worked hard to turn it into reality”, she explained.
