Museo de la Pirateria, Teguise
(2.1/5 based on 120 reviews on the web)
While Museo de la Pirateria is not an easy place to access, the museum's contents and remarkable location make the trip worth it. Sitting atop a hill overlooking Teguise, the castle requires visitors to navigate a narrow road with sharp drops on either side, and even parking spots are located on the edge of a cliff because of limited space. Regardless, incredible views await you in every direction. The fortification once protected the land from pirates, but now acts as a memorial. Learn about the history of piracy in the area, see ancient weapons, and even examine a replica of the castle as it once was. Models of the ships are also available. Make Museo de la Pirateria part of your personalized Lanzarote itinerary using our Lanzarote vacation trip planner.

  • Cons:-information that you can find inside you can search on the Internet and you stay equal. -You have 2-3 old guns and little else. -A little chaotic because one does not know where they should go or indicated as follow a chronological order.

  • a castle in a crater of a volcano? as I was going to miss it! It is interesting that they have enabled it as a piracy Museum (that is the least... the best are the views from the Castle) left Me good taste see something that is not more than once in the life: a hawk trying to hunt down a dove around the Castle. Impressive view such bird still in the air on the side of our, and throw in chopped suddenly. The views are amazing from there also, especially if it is a half sunny half cloudy day, to see the clouds change the landscape with its movement

  • This museum is very easy to visit, it's not too big but the view is amazing. The entrance is only £3.00. Since I love castles, this was one of the best attractions for me.
