This is worth walking up from the marina rubicon Marina , just follow up the steps the views are worth it . The actual monument doesn't really tell a lot ,just a small outpost nothing to go inside or walk around .

Interesting visit as en route into Playa Blanca anyway. Doubt if I'd go out my way to visit it though. Some history boards in English, but main gate locked, so can only peer inside to a room with nothing in it !!

Not at all difficult to get to if you're near the marina any way. Really great views and a tiny bit of history to add to it.

This 'Castle' is right outside our favorite villas and is very scenic. Nothing really much to do at the Castle other than climb up the few steps and try to see inside (all locked up), take some photos and wander around the cliff edge. Whoever...More

Informative boards beside castle telling history, short visit only as it doesn't long to look round it

Reached by leaving the marina. Quieter part of the resort, but being very developed with lots of apartment developments on different scales, but a nice stroll for as long as you want to walk.

Situated on the promenade from Marina Rubicon to Papagoya beach it stands out on the cliff top, but in reality that is all it does. Nothing vaguely attractive about it, best viewed from a distance.

I mean it's great they've chosen to preserve the building and it looks great from a distance as part of the coast....but beyond that is it really worth being treated like a site that requires the ugliest eye sore toilets ever conceived to be erected?...More
