  • This castle is connected to the rest of the city thanks to a stretch of road from which you can admire the clarity of the ocean and enjoy the view. Very cute and typical Castle in Central Arrecife. Museum inside unfortunately was closed and a local lady told us that it is closed now for a couple of months. Worth a walk around. Also nice beaches that are at the foot of the Castle.

  • We only saw this fortress from the outside, and it has a great ancient atmosphere to it. Good for tourist photoshoots too, and enough space to breathe - a big difference to the city.
  • Quite a surprise. Really great museum. Learned a lot about local history of Lanzarote and the Canary islands.
  • Some local places to visit. Good to pass the time or a day visit.
  • Should be called Castilleto or something. Doesn't deserve the name "castle". It's tiny!
  • A small but interesting Castle. On the reef, I remember constant from times past that contrasts with the modernity of the city. Inside there is a mini free Museum, so it is no more enter.
