“A Castle to see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

We stayed at the Paradisus Rio De Oro, in Jan 2013, and rented 3 Taxis for the day to visit the castle, there were 14 of us in total, we all loved it. The views are exceptional,and is is a fantastic place to take beautiful pictures. The drive was 3 hours across the island , but enjoyable,well worth it

“Stunning views from a historical castle”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

Lovely castle with a bridge and lots of lizards basking in the sunshine. Great place to take photos so make sure you pay the couple of pounds at the entrance because you'll get some amazing pics.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

The place is a beautiful piece of Spanish colonial defense structure, preservation is excellent. The best time of the day to go is sunset when a ceremony is held with an old canyon. Sunset is also a must. Remember, Santiago is hot, so going at noon would be painful.

“Pirates of Caribbean tune still playing in my head”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

Not much to see on inside, the exhibition is small and completely in Spanish, however the castle itself is an architectural marvel. Beautifully preserved and offering stunning views and loads of lizards around, it is worth a visit. Negotiate a round trip with a taxidriver beforehand.
