Teguise Ayuntamiento announced last Wednesday that the restoration of the Timple Museum in the heart of Teguise has begun after the ceiling in one of the rooms collapsed.
Mayor of Teguise, Olivia Duque, stated “these works are part of our policy of restoring our important buildings and heritage sites, not only carrying out maintenance work, but working within our plan for the protection of the heritage of Teguise.”
The Timple Museum is a “cultural treasure of Teguise, which has played a key role in the preservation and promotion of our musical heritage, becoming a beacon of inspiration for local artists and lovers of Canarian music”, Duque added.
“Over the years the museum has hosted exhibitions, workshops, concerts and cultural events. For this reason, this restoration project represents an ongoing commitment to our roots.”
The restoration work will be carried out with a focus on respecting and preserving the original architecture and spirit of the building, while improvements will be made to enrich visitors’ experiences.
The work is expected to finish shortly, with a reopening scheduled for November coinciding with the Saborea Food Festival in Teguise.
