Castillo de las Coloradas, Playa Blanca

3.0
#2 of 10 in Historic Sites in Lanzarote
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. A visit to Castillo de las Coloradas represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Lanzarote trip itinerary planner to plot your vacation.

    Legendary monument of Lanzarote but nothing interesting, nothing more to do than what you see in the photo just with good sea views.

    Castle of more well a surveillance Tower in an estraegico with spectacular views siio and that you can access with a very walk from various places and from Marina Rubicón, or from the Costa del Papagayo,... is very nice at sunset seeing the sunset and alos fishermen on the cliffs near the tower.

    The fort is worth strolling up to. You can't go it but it is on a headland which gives good views of the coast in both directions. About half an hour would be a maximum stay.  more »

  • 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
