Loved this castle. Even though it hasnt any relics inside, the drawbridge that you go up to is greatand then it is all about the Pirates inside. There are some films also being shown inside. The best bit is the view. You can go right to the top and around the walls. This is built on a dormant volcano and... More

We visited the Castillo on the drive back from Teguise and were very pleasantly surprised. A 3 Euro bargain with a host of history! The castle itself is quite small but the museum has filled its many rooms with an array of modern displays. Well worth the visit to add a little pirate education to a family holiday.

What a great place to visit on a weekday when the market(sunday) isn't on. There are numerous bars with Tapas and the locals singing in them. Just up the road, but don't try and walk it, is the castle. If you go on sunday the market is massive with bargains to be had if you haggle. An example is a... More

We visited this site for about 45 minutes before attending the main Teguise market and I was unexpectedly surprised, it sits perched over the main Teguise village. The drive up to the museum can be a bit hair raising but it is well worth it! Inside is a small museum with underground tunnels, in which you learn more about the... More

As reviewed for pirate museum. Had to walk up but was worth it for views and a bit of architecture. Couldn't visit museum on this visit due to early closure.

The building itself, drive up there and views from, are well worth a visit. The piracy museum is very poor. Worth going just for the building and views.

Good views over the centre of the island from this old fort/castle. Inside is a museum on pirates, this was more interested than expected and was cheap enough to pay just to have a walk on the ramparts.

As part of the Piracy Museum we took many pictures from this castle that overlooks Teguise. The narrow road leading up to the castle needs to be well negociated !!
