  • We were there on sunday and when the museum was closed.. Would have been nice to go inside, but maybe next time.. :) 
  • You can see along the waterfront. I failed to go to the inside, despite several approaches. I suspect that from the outside does a better impression than from the inside.

  • 1500-century thanks to its history, leading to an interesting Fort, which protected the guests valloittajilta and merirosvoita Arrecifea and Lanzarote-always unsuccessfully. And the Islanders themselves nahistelleet bastions of control. Today, the historical Museum of the city of Arrecife is located here. The damage that big pictures is subtitled only in Spanish. Three years ago in the same place when we went, we were told that the English language versions are soon to come. As a hint that the guests that over 65 years have access free of charge, but the age should have Passport or other document. We have not been involved in, so we had to pay 3 € the ticket. We were one of the viitseliäitä as after us become saksalaisherra, who played his wife this to bring him a passport.

  • 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.
