  • On a whim we decided to visit the castle rather than continue strolling around the town. I'm so glad we did. Admission was 4€ (1€ for students and over 65's with id). Parts of the castle have been "sa...  more »

  • An impressive structure with a more impressive history. The modern museum is integrated into the existing structure of the castle seamlessly and the exhibits explain the history well. Also, translations are available in English, so don't worry if your Spanish isn't up to par. The views from the walls are stunning on a good day.
  • This was a must see in tarifa great history and the museum was surprisingly modern.
  • There are a number of interesting buildings in Tarifa but arguably the most important is Castillo de Guzman. This 10th-century medieval fortress is known as the Castle of Guzmán the Good. It was named after Alfonso Pérez Guzmán who in no way would have won the 'Father of the Year' award - apparently, he threw down his dagger to besieging Moorish forces for them to execute his son who had been held hostage. He did this rather than surrender the city to the marauding Arabs.
  • Full of history
  • Great views from the castle and not expensive, well worth a visit.
