Grain stores across Lanzarote are very common across the island and many are currently being demolished. However, these can also hold secrets of the past and cultural traditions.
This week, a local resident investigating a demolished barn in Lanzarote found a notebook dated 1965 that captured a brief image of the island’s agricultural history.
The notebook included “628 kilos of peas sold for 3,454 pesetas (20 euros)” that gives an insight into values of food around 50 years ago.
These granary buildings are very common in Lanzarote, but today are being demolished in most places, but within these historic spaces, there are likely to be authentic treasures that tell the story of history of agriculture from previous times.
