3/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web
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.
