Heritage Walk San Marcial del Rubicón

Yesterday I joined a group of thirty volunteers at 9am in the Papagayo area of  Playa Blanca, in the South of Lanzarote. We were participating in a walk to “Connect with the past” along the Ruta San Marcial del Rubicón with Nacho from Senderismo Lanzarote in collaboration with the Servicio de Patrimonio Histórico del Cabildo de Lanzarote.

VolunteersHorno del Cal Playa Mujeres

On arrival in the car park we were given a picnic, a large black bag and a pair of gloves before our first stop on Playa Mujeres. If you’ve been to this beach before, you can’t help to notice the old structure built into the cliff on the far right hand side. This is a horno de cal (lime kiln) where a fire would be lit for 2-3 days to heat the local stone which produced lime, this powder would then be taken from the beach by boat.
