  • Well what can I say, you see what was but you don't understand it from the historic side... no matter it is a worth seeing but can not necessary but nice to see what you got

  • In addition to the fortification itself, it is to point out the two shells of bronze of 21 cm ·" Plasencia"in the arsenal of artillery in Seville at the end of the 19th century. They are lacking in the closing, but they retain "Lerdo-Millan" (from wheels) Assembly. They are two very interesting artillery pieces (for which the subject, likes clear). Howitzers are different from the cannons that have the shortest tube, but above all, they can throw with much higher inclination angunos (50 degrees and more). Its scope would be about 6 Km.

  • Concerned Museum to learn about the history of Lanzarote. Quick visit, but interesting it's worth it, I would highly recommend it.

  • 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.
