We have been to Teguise a lot of times but never visited the Pirate museum. It is very interesting, and quite an eye opener when you look through all the exhibits. It was fascinating to read all the History and recognise many English sailors names...More

Each year we re-visit Lanzarote and each year we find something new to see or do and here is another one to add to our list of things to do "next year". Amazing place.

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.
