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 !!

Now a museum of piracy, this castle is a true stronghold from the days when the main danger came from the seas. Its vantage point offers unlimited views over the surrounding land. It looks small from outside abut inside it is an incredible maze of rooms, cellars, courtyards, turrets. It appeals to everyone's inner child.

Hired a car for a day and stopped off here in the morning. Fantastic views from the castle and the pirate museum was surprisingly good too. Well worth driving up to for an hour or so!

Stopped at this whilst passing. Seems little known as its a bit hidden away. Great view from the castle. Cost is 3 Euro each to go inside and view the small museum which was alright, with a little insight into the pirate past of Lanzarote.
