#2 of 10 in Historic Sites in Lanzarote
Historic Site Landmark
Castillo de las Coloradas, a watchtower dating back to the mid-18th century, offers a lesson in military architecture and a reminder that Europeans settled in the Canary islands much later than other parts of Spain. Built to defend against attacks by the Corsicans, the watchtower’s bell warned against attacks by pirates, as well. Plan to spend some time appreciating the views on the walk toward and around this tower.

  • Very remote. Went there at sunrise. Just Watch out for the flies/midges
  • Nice to see this small 15th century fort/castle in near original condition. Unfortunately you are not allowed to enter the castle, so I would have scored higher if we were allowed inside.
  • The view surrounding the castle is much more breathtaking than the building, but is nice to still see a castle from the 15th C.
  • Very quiet, nice to sit for a while
  • Great views very peaceful
