The tower, which sits alone in a park, was built by a local family in the 1700s and served as both a fort and local prison at times. You can go up to the second storey but sadly not on the roof! It now seems to be maintained by an armed forces historical association and they've done a good job... More

This old tower stands alone in a small park; its worth a visit if you are passing. You can go inside and climb the stairs up two storeys (I didn't manage the top one - not good with open stairs at heights!). Sadly all the explanatory boards are only in Spanish, so I don't really know its history.

Clean and central, opposite the best restraint in town for my money. Roof terrace is good with a hot jaquouzi. Breakfast was ok. Nothing special but pleasant.

It is a pretty park. It was a quiet spot but attractive with its trees. There is an old Fort that has history associated with it for old architecture built in 1447.

Torre del Conde is situated in a small village of which hosts many various different shops and a large port, spanning out all over the canary islands. I would recommend the village for its heart warming culture, religious background, and wide range of shops and beautiful sights. I would also recommend the port if you want a day trip to... More

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
