The events conclude with a small tasting of products from the island and wines from Bodegas Vega de Yuco. Entrance is free and open.
The purpose of this pilgrimage is “present extraordinary old films to the inhabitants of the island. In them the past forms of life of Lanzarote are condensed and make us cross landscapes, popular festivals, modes of transport, towns, farms, etc. All of this returns from the past to show us what the island was like not so many years ago.”, they explain from the association.
