Close to Marina Rubicon. An easy uphill walk for some lovely views across Playa Blanca and over to Fuertaventura.

Some really nice photos to be got up there around the cliffs. Wouldn't plan a day around a visit here, you'll be done in 5 mins. Still nice to see though

This place looked really cool walking along away from our cruise boat. walking up there, it really was not that exciting or special. Just take a picture and keep going, unless you have time to kill.

Perfectly placed landmark, in such a wonderful location around blue waters on low cliffs. Awesome, must see for location value alone.

Not much to see of the castle but you end up at the edge of the cliff (be careful if the usual Lanzarote gale is blowing) so there is the opportunity for some good pictures.

Nice to walk to the edge of the cliff, and good for photo opportunities - the isolation is part of the attraction, but a tourist kiosk was being built while I was there. Overlooks the marina.

Unfortunately we were not able to come into after several attempts. The sunsets from the rock, where the fortress is, are incredible.

The only reason we can to here was the views and the geocache. It would have been nice to have an information panel for visitors to read the history of the Castillo.
