This was on the coastal walk from Papagayo to Playa Blanca and a wonderful pit-stop to sit, take in the views and take some lovely photos. Not worth a separate trip out I'd say but great if you are going to do the walk anyway.

We walked past this 'castle' on the way down to Playa Blanca. It's very unusual - big and round and of no obvious function. I guess it was a lookout at one time because it has a very commanding view of the whole coast. Not sure if you can actually get in - we did not try. It is perched... More

A nice view if you are close by but the Marina area is a much nicer place to visit which is just before you get to the castle from the town.

The little castle you find on the promenade was stunning, we took many lovely pictures on that side and we could see an amazing view looking onto Punta del Papagayo.

if you are on the Lido , go see , if not, its not worth driving or planing for. You can't go inside. The LIdo are worth the walk all though

An interesting, and free of charge, side show. Worth a few minutes if you're already in the area. Not much else in the area other than shops.

the castle itself is rather unimpressive, almost a non-castle, however it is in a really nice location and fits nicely in a long promenade walk between Papagayo and Playa Blanca

An interesting little tower on the headland between the Papagayo point and the marina at Playa Blanca. No access to the inside, but worth seeing.

Its worth a walk to this landmark, a beautiful walk up the promenade. On clear days you can see the natural beaches at Papagayo from this landmark and also great views of Feurteventura.

The walk to the castillo is great along the promenade and you can see it for miles. BUT when you get there you can see from the plaque that it was built in 1769 and you can climb the steps, but thats about it. The views from the headland are amazing, but an iron grating prevents you from getting inside.... More
