Former capital city of the island, Betancuria is a must-see in Fuerteventura. The village is named after Jean de Bethencourt, the French noble of Normand origins who invaded the island in 1402, and it’s one of the first cities to be built in the Canary Islands. Since then, and until the 19th century, Betancuria had been the capital city and the centre of administration of the island. Nowadays, the municipality has less than a thousand inhabitants, but it keeps the original charm and many representative places that you can visit to discover the history of the island at first hand.
