Castillo decided las Coloradans is an impressive structure an is one of the few man-made points of historic interest in playa Blanca. It is set on a cliff top near the Rubicon Marian and is the main fortress and first military structure constructed by the Spanish when they conquered the Canary islands. This information I had to Google as there... More

This is a nice target to walk/jog/bike to - and the view from there is not bad. However, the place is not open for visit, the surroundings are either run down or hotel complexes - depending on the way you walk on.

It's a great landmark but it should be made safe and opened to attract more visits. Portable toilets are now there as well as an information spot. These were never open during our 3 week stay but I trust that will happen soon.

It was currently on sale last week for around 120,000 euros- which seemed strange as not sure who would buy it as doubt you can develop around this little building but there you go. Its up high along the walk between the Gran Castillo hotel and The Marina Rubicon, its around 10 minute walk from Playa Blanca beach. You can't... More

Used this as a marker for running, lovely views, no access to the inside, however it is a historic landmark if your nearby it's worth the walk.

Short climb up from Marina Rubicon the castle sits nicely overlooking both the marina and a nice coastline. You can't get into the building so in that respect its a little limited but nice walk and some good views.

Peaceful little spot located just east of the Rubicon marina. Easy walk up to the fort, it is however closed which is a shame. Some nice photo ops, but as mentioned, take care near the edge on a blowy day.
