FUERTEVENTURA LOCAL NEWS
Fuerteventura's Cabildo has completed the work and signposting on 65 kilometres of tracks from the Island Hiking Path Network that lead to the sanctuary of Virgen de la Peña, in Vega de Río Palma from each municipality.

The initiative that was carried out in coordination with the Ayuntamiento of Betancuria is part of the project called «Caminos de La Peña» and aims at emphasising the yearly pilgrimage of the majorero population in September in honour of the island's patron saint. The project also aimed at making the pedestrian traffic easier for the thousands of pilgrims who come every September to the Chapel in Vega de Río Palma for the celebrations of the Fiestas de La Peña.

The island's Cabildo also aims at bringing dynamism to the municipality of Betancuria, by proposing to hikers to use the Caminos de La Peña all year long, as, in addition to the religious interest of the event, the cultural values of the area are also interesting for tourists at any time of the year. The operatives installed a total of 60 wooden posts with the identifying plate of «Caminos de La Peña».

At present, various sculptures are being installed to mark the beginning of each path until its last section in Vega de Río Palma. Furthermore, they also carried out modification of the water drainage, marked the sides of the paths, repaired stone walls and steps, as well as the repairs of the actual tracks. Thanks to this project, the local hiking paths SL-FV29, SL-FV31 are being consolidated as «Caminos de La Peña». Furthermore, the large path called GR-131, the main central path of the island, becomes part of the network of «Caminos de La Peña» when it goes through the municipality of Betancuria.
