La Casa Del Maestro means “The Teacher’s House” and that’s exactly what this museum is – it used to be the village teacher’s house, with the classroom just inside the front door: one end is now display cases with things like old school books, and the other displays the devil costume, used for the village’s main fiesta. The house is built around central courtyard, with a tank for storing rainwater, called an aljibe.
The kitchen is very old-fashioned. It even has an old handmill, presumably for grinding roasted grains into gofio for breakfast.
The other rooms hold other displays. One is replicas of pre-Hispanic ceramics found on the island, made in the workshop in Mazo, and others are full of old photographs documents, bric-a-brac and craft work.
