About
The Casa de los Coroneles –House of the Colonels– in La Oliva (Fuerteventura, Spain), construction of the second half of the 17th century and attributed to Ginés de Cabrera de Bethencourt, is a majestic building representative of the power, which took as model the domestic housing Canary urban centers, typical of the Modern Age, and that has come to the present day as one of the most relevant architectural works of the Heritage in Canary Islands.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

a huge and beautiful house, especially the wood works on ceiling, doors and windows. a part of the exhibition is on the house and its history, another part on actual issues, at the moment plastics and recycling. worth the visit.

Monday 9th November and we visited the town of La Oliva in the northern region of the Island, where this building is located.

The grand old house was closed when we visited, closed Sundays and Mondays.

Although the house was closed we were able to walk around outside and wander through the crumbling old out buildings.

The House sits with a backdrop of impressive mountains.

There is an art gallery in the house and there is an entry fee of €3. Not sure we would have bothered with the art gallery had it been open.

The restored property was inaugurated on 25th November 2006 by King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofua.

Sadly a number of structural cracks are evident on parts of the building.

We were the only visitors here, so we were free to ramble around freely at our leisure.

A number of squirrel like animals were running around the grounds.

My wife and I visited the Casa de los Coroneles on a cruise ship excursion taking in the best sights of Fuerteventura. This 18th Century house was formerly the residence of the island's colonel. It's an interesting historical monument which has been restored and is now a museum / multipurpose cultural centre.

There are two floors with a central courtyard and the upper floor offers some great views of the surrounding countryside. If you are interested in the history of the island this is the perfect stop-off point.

There is a lot of information in this house with regard to its history. We loved wandering around the rooms of the house at our leisure and although there is no furniture in there, there is a lot of information on the walls which showed how it used to be. We loved it and thought it was well worth a visit.

3 euros gains entry to this unusual building. It has not reached its full potential as a tourist spot but is an unusual and quirky piece of architecture located in an area with outstanding views. Upstairs there are exhibitions and the social history exhibits of Fuerteventura are interesting.
Certainly worth a stop.

A lot of empty rooms. Not too many information about this place. The building is renovated but empty. The single regular ticket cost 3€.

Visited La Oliva on a day that it was too windy for the beach.
The Casa is very interesting and provides an excellent set of information on the history of the islands.
Don’t expect it to be fitted out with the original furniture like a National Trust property.
Very good value at €3 per person entrance fee.

It is an old colonels house. The house has no furniture left but still the building is quite nice. Also la oliva is a nice small village to visit.

Best seen with a tourist guide who can explain all the details of the house, even as a private visitor, it's probably the finest example of Spanish Colonial architecture in the Canary Islands. The ground floor usually houses art exhibitions and the upstairs the history of the house. The staircase is built with stone from the nearby Tindaya mountain.
