Arrecife received a surprise gift last month – a vintage cannon that has been assessed as having historical value by Cabildo Heritage staff.

The cannon had been in the apartment of a resident of El Reducto beach who recently died, and their family had contacted the Cabildo’s Heritage Department to inform them of the discovery and donate the cannon, which was originally found in the bay of Arrecife.

“We analysed the relic and, after verifying its heritage value, we proceeded to remove it. We are pleased to be able to continue adding pieces to the history of Lanzarote, and even more so when we do it through the collaboration and involvement of the island’s residents”, said the Cabildo’s Councillor of Patrimony, Ariagona González.
