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.

Nice history and looks good from the outside. Just wish we could have got inside as I am sure they could make a great display

Yes this was an important building in the islands history, situated at the edge of the cliffs with spectacular scenery, just up from Rubicon marina. But it is locked and there is no way to even see inside .It can be accessed via the promenade walk, but, personally, unless you are really into old locked buildings, give it a miss

Couldn't get in and not very large (sighted on the cliffs just above Rubicon Marina). Nearly 300 years old and it would have been nice to be able to have a look inside (although there probably wouldn't have been much to see

It's a Castillo, not much to see. There's no entrance inside. The views from the point are nice in each direction around the bay. If you enjoy walking then go see it but I probably wouldn't recommend going out of your way other than for the nice walk along the promenade.
