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.

  • At the Summit of a volcano already in a beautiful spot, this Castle/Museum. The entry is quite affordable and has enough material to the topic. It is the only park with this topic and this very well treated. It is faithful to the story so who comes looking for pirates corriwndo here and making a better show that plan a visit to Disney. Friendly staff and as much as 10 landscape building. Recommended IF you like history and of course pirates.
