This is a strange building and can be found within the main park which is just off the main square and easily found. If open a few interesting nautical things can be found.

Has a small display of old sailing charts, gun positions and ranges and a facsimile of the English Naval demand for surrender of the tower (refused) in C18. Worth a short visit

This historic tower has been beautifully maintained in a landscaped square. Very photogenic; it must be one of the most photographed sites in San Sebastian if not La Gomera

That times not the tourists came from England, but mainly pirates. Today the guests from England and other countries are of course very welcome. In the surrounding park they can walk, relax and enjoy fine coffee

Well worth visiting the Unique historic Tower and the pretty park surrounding it. The exhibition in the Tower and the Tower itself is very interesting and the feel of the Whole package - Tower and park - is something quite special.
