Very historic old castle with a cannon. Lots of historic walls to walk along. Some great views amongst a fantastic stretch of coastline.

The guides are very knowledgeable and fluent in at least 4 languages. There is information on the history of Arrecife, pirates, armaments and even a Mummy to look at. The Terrace gives a great view of the coastline, port and beaches. An hour well spent!

Nothing really special, small fort with museum of history inside. Free entry. The only attraction was to go on the roof of it to see the city.

Great views and lots of information inside about the history and protection of the island a few hundred years ago....

Beautiful location - off rocky reefs accessed by bridges over open water. A great place to stretch your legs; feel the wind; and explore some history. All the info boards in Spanish but visual explanations very clear. Great views back to the old town.

You can easily walk out to the castle from the shore on either of two pathways. Castle seems in good condition and hosts a local history museum (€3 in)- but it's also a great point to look back at the city and along the coast.
