  • Very nice visit to this beautiful defensive Castle suffered not only the vicissitudes of time, if not of the history which holds. Very nice guide that made us a visit from the outside very detailed and Nice, with fantastic explanations. To see, without a doubt.

  • travel in Spain is always much thinking. Castles, fortresses, walls, cisterns, aquaducts are scattered everywhere, even where they have been built more or less beautiful cities (often) or tourist places now as Tarifa. The beautiful castillo was closed when we reached, but given its strategic location made us once again rethink the turbulent history of Spain, made of conquests and reconquests. Here, the fact of seeing Africa so close, says many pieces of history uncovered in other parts of the country

  • The castle of Guzman el Bueno is a truly exceptional piece of history. By visiting this site, especially the towers offer views of the Harbour and the sea of the Strait, you can imagine what they saw the occupants. The Castle retains the original form, some of the rooms and some objects unfortunately not many but I think we can visit a place so ancient is priceless. A must see if you visit Tarifa.

  • Big old castle in center of Tarifa. The walk on the walls gives beautiful views of the city and Africa. Interesting museum.
  • Nice view on the city and the port from top of the tower. The is also an interesting museum abouy the history of the castle inside.
  • More interesting and with more things to see than I expected. There are also great views of the port and the town.
  • Nothing special inside...could be brought to life a bit better.the views from walls saved the castle tour from fail
  • Pretty good castle for Spain, not a patch on U.K. Castles but ok, worth a 30 min wonder around
