A remarkable bit of history on the southern part of the island. But it’s not much to look at and was not even open when we went. We did go to the cliff beyond and have a beautiful swim though. Don’t go just for this.

Very quiet, fell on it whilst on a cycle ride. Great view and beautiful clear sea surrounding. Kids climbed around on the rocks

Worth the visit just for the views situated along the costal path so easy to reach from the marina rubicon

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
