The historic windmill in Teguise can now show off its brand-new blades as the project enters the final stretch of restoration work on a windmill which had been grinding since the beginning of the 20th century.

The famous windmill in Los Molinos shows off its brand-new blades this week, financed by European funds in collaboration with the Lanzarote Cabildo. The work forms a part of a larger restoration project that’s taking place in Teguise currently, which will see the restoration of La Molina, Castilllo de Santa Bárbara, Calle León y Castillo and the original lions in the Plaza de la Constitución.

Mayor of Teguise, Oswaldo Betancort, stated that “after years of demands and a lot of work, today we can finally see how impressive those blades now look.”.

Public Works Councillor, Eugenio Robayna, pointed out “the machinery work of the mill is already in the final stretch, and later the surrounding areas will be changed to make it more accessible, in addition to adding lighting to better the aesthetic.”.
