It dates back to the first known settlement in the 16th and 17th centuries. The parish church of Nuestra Señora de Regla, built between the 17th and 18th century, stands out through its fašade with Aztec decorations, it is one of the most attractive monuments on the Island. It's also worth visiting the chapels of San Antonio (18th century) in the town of Toto and that of the Virgen de la Peña, the patron saint of Fuerteventura, set in the "Barranco de las Peñitas",
where a "romeria"(traditional visit to a local shrine with merrymaking) is held and in which the whole Island participates in the month of September. You can also visit the Pajara Nature Sanctuary which is home to local plant life.
The local holidays for Pajara are held in July: on the 2nd, the holy day for the Virgen de Regla, and on the 16th, for the Virgen del Carmen, when the local fishermen take the statue of the Virgin out to sea.
