  • A small museum in the castle of San Jose. Met some interesting exhibits at the bottom there is a café. And upstairs-the observation deck

  • Interesting to borrow the spiral staircase to get to the ground floor where we discover a small restaurant with a view of the port of Arrecife and the sculptures in the water at the first of the "Castillo". When I visited an exhibition of Gonzalo Chillida (1926-2008) one of the best Spanish painters of the second half of the 20th century according to some experts.

  • Frankly no interest: two rooms with tables... and it's all (or about 20 not exceptional works)! The restaurant can be interesting but closed the day we came... nice view from the restaurant

  • 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.
