About us

Who are we?

We are a business of the Fuerteventura Network

Trecepeces is a local registered trademark created in 2014. We are a travel souvenir shop for Fuerteventura and more specifically for travel souvenirs from Ajuy, a small fishing village of about 80 inhabitants far from any urban centre. Ajuy is spectacularly beautiful and represents the origin of the Canary Islands. It is the first piece of Canarian land that came out of the sea and is known for the geological and touristic interest of Las Cuevas de Ajuy, a protected natural space that is accessed through a spectacular fossilised dune.

We are especially linked to the sea. On the one hand, the brand is inspired by the way of life of the local fishermen, more specifically the Hernández Trujillo family, artisanal bluefin tuna fishermen in the Canary Islands. In Ajuy, in an old fishermen's house in front of the sea, owned by this family, we began our story. On the other hand, we work with the jayos, which is a Canarian word that represents everything that the sea gives back and that should not be there.

We make handicrafts and decorations with the jayos. We started out going to the beaches to collect them ourselves, but now we are a kind of recycling point. Friends and neighbours in the village know about it and when they come across marine litter they bring it straight to us. In just a few years, the type of rubbish that is returned to the sea has changed a lot. We find more and more plastic and less and less wood.

Reusing and recycling these jallos is our small way of raising awareness about how we are leaving our seas. Behind every jallo there is a story, the sea knows it and that is why it gives it back to us, so that we can give it a second life.
Discover with us an authentic fishing village. Its corners, its sunsets and its beaches. A walk to the caves that marked the beginning of the Canarian archipelago, a swim in its black sand beach, at the foot of the Cantil and its fossil dune. Enjoy our gastronomy in the restaurants with fresh fish of the day. Stay and watch the sunsets that will surprise you.
