  • We were on the last day before heading to the airport since we had a few hours. The entrance you have to pay it and some of the Group decided to enter and others are not. The truth is that he would not visit it if it isn't because so much time, I'd rather go to Playa Blanca and Puerto del Carmen since it has more charm.

  • Small defensive Castle located on a small island which is accessed by a bridge. It served to defend the port of Arrecife. Inside it houses a small museum but it is closed on Sundays. Two cannons flank the front door. Good views of the surroundings.

  • Well located, with good pictures of postureo with a pair of cannons ;-) You can take a good walk once there by all the port.

  • Great bit of history of Lanzarote. The €3 entrance is reasonable given it holds a small exhibition. I was disappointed that the displays only had explanations in Spanish, given the amount of tourists that must visit. This should be improved.
  • Actually quite interesting little place. Impressively laid out internally. Was free on day I went so may be a small charge for entrance. There are a couple of souvenirs available.
  • Lovely but the only issue was that it's all in Spanish and they didn't have any English leaflets, entrance fee €3.00.
  • Old fortress to defend the harbour at Arriceffe now a museum. Good to look round
  • Would be 5 stars if the exhibits had english text as well as spanish.
