  • Located on a ledge of land that goes into the sea, this castle is very nice on the outside, I found it closed, gave me the impression that they haven't opened for a while, I'm not sure. To get to it you can cross the old drawbridge, they know it as a ball bridge, and walk a charming walkway. It's worth taking a picture of yourself in your cannons. Recommended.

  • The Castillo de San Gabriel is in very good condition and it's nice to walk on the bridge that connects the city to the castle. You can take some very nice pictures. On the other hand, the visit to the museum is not especially worth it because the entrance is 3 euros per person. The interior of the castle is really small and all the signs telling the history of the city,... are written in Spanish. There is no translation for tourists. The tour is done in 5-10min, it's a bit expensive for what it is. The only positive of the visit is the access to the floor to enjoy a beautiful view.
