Lime Kilns at Las Cabezas
Now renovated and turned into a public park, this group of buildings dates from the end of the XVIIIth Century. It consists of three vaulted buildings for industrial use, which in their day served to produce plaster of Paris and lime, basic building materials. The kilns themselves are made of solid stone and brick. The whole plant included water tanks , the boiler house where the lime was taken after being fired, the coal shed and the store. The limestone was shipped in to the harbour at Puerto from the Island of Fuerteventura.
