Compared to French castles, this is rather small, but it gives nice views from the surroundings. It costs 3 euros each to visit the pirates museum, but for what you got its worth it and helps them supporting this landmark.

On one of those days when when a car is very useful. I'm not sure if this features in any hotel excursions due to it's location up a very narrow road with extremely limited parking. We wouldn't want to walk up but if you've got...More

This museum tells the story of Lanzarotes history of pirates and the need to defend itself from pirate invasion. The position of the fortress provides great views essential for defending against aggressors.
