  • With only €4 entrance charge, this super little gallery is well worth a visit. Some particularly good sculptures. The building itself was as impressive as the contemporary art work.  more »
  • Building is excellent but did not find Picasso or Miro. Not a lover of the paintings that were on display but the sculptures were interesting especially the horses and riders in the sea nearby  more »
  • A beautiful old castle turned art gallery. There were some fantastic paintings by Gonzalo Chillida on display when we were there and the building itself is so lovely, right next to the sea. Great bar ...  more »

  • Originally built in 1779 by order of the King of Spain this small fortification now houses a contemporary art gallery. The building was left to ruin but in the 80's the architect Cesar Manrique restored it to its former glory and added a restaurant for good measure. Situated inbetween the old port and the new this fortification wasn't very effective at spotting pirate attacks but today you can enjoy the exhibition (including Jason Taylor 2016). The restuarant is open daily and overlooks the port, ideal for watching cruise ships come and go (mainly winter season). This restaurant also has the most photographed toilets on the whole island, curious?
  • I took the stairs up to the roof and also to the mid-level "underwater" exhibit which was good. While I didn't eat there, the restaurant seemed very nice with floor to ceiling windows overlooking harbor.
  • I would love to see the museum uber the see which will be fulfilled with the sculptures exposed
  • Great Museum, the restaurant offers fantastic views on the harbour.
  • Nice view of the harbour. Rather small museum.
