  • This was a little stop in my tour around the island in which I have to say that when you get the gardens and surroundings of the promised me an interesting visit but the truth is that it is a small place in everything that is seen in a short time and that not noted for anything in particular, maybe that qiera eat in its restaurant can have an ACE beautiful view in a venue that seems years 60 but with very current prices.

  • Visit totally dispensable. We went there because it was included in the bonus of 6 visits. And it was the most boring and inconspicuous. The only thing interesting castle itself. But not more. It was not worth going

  • Small Museum of contemporary art located in a former defensive fortress reconstructed by César Manrique. It houses some interesting picture of Canary Island authors. The cafeteria is quiet and she and terrace you can see interesting sculptures of four horses with riders within the water work of De Caires.

  • Firstly unlike Castillo San Gabriel, you pay €4 to go in. Free leaflets are available in various languages, but do not explain the art works. The castle is a modern art gallery, containing around forty works. It's a mixture of paintings and sculptures, a lot of which are very abstract and rather inaccessible unless you are a true art connoisseur. The main floor is at least wheel chair accessible, although there may be small steps between rooms. The layout of the castle is interesting though, with stairs leading down from the main floor to a restaurant below. Stairs up to the roof and another staircase leading from the roof down to a hidden gate house. There are good views from the roof over the port too. Probably not worth the expense if you just want to visit the fort, particularly if you are a family or group.
  • Very small castle that was turned into the modern art gallery. I personally don't like modern art, but you may find it's interesting. Just keep in mind it's small. Downstairs you can find nice relaxing restaurant with great view.
  • Really beautiful building with wonderfully grand 1970s art works and Castle top views ..well worth a visit and great escape from the heat of the day...
  • This is included in the combo ticket for visiting the major sights on the island (otherwise 4 Euros on its own) and pales in comparison, to be frank. They are to be commended for restoring such an old building but it's surprisingly small inside and it doesn't take long to see the collection of modern artworks. There are no signs making it clear, but there is access to the roof and downstairs space with a few more pieces of art. Total visit time 15 minutes including a browse in the shipping container that serves as the shop. Restaurant looks good though.
  • To be honest I was expecting something entirely different. 1st of all considering the size I wouldn't even call it a castle and I am not really into the art especially modern. If I wouldn't buy a voucher for 6 entries I most probably did not bother.
