Museo de la Pirateria, Teguise

(150+ reviews on the web)
Castle
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.

  • but few old artefacts. Lots of boards in English as well as Spanish and German telling the history of all the pirates, privateers and invasions. Modern pirate themed artwork, too. Good views from the ...  more »
  • Visit it with desire, already that the children wanted to see it. The historical information is good, taste of children it would be missing the visit was guided and to do more stress upon modern stories of piracy and series such as "one piece" already that make stress upon the "romantic" literary history of the pirates, among other many realities, some related to the Green cave, we had to Miss interactive information for q is more pleasant visit to children.

  • It is surprising to see a castle in the Canaries. Only that is the reason why it is worth climb to see it, the views are breathtaking. Otherwise there's nothing special, it would be more interesting with a guided, even for children. Children do not read posters!

  • It is fun and not expensive. The castle is small, but has many corners to go and the views of the island are good.
