This is a gallery of Modern Art contained within a castle, apparently built as piece of local job creation over 200 years ago
It contains many paintings with a few sculptures, and has the air of being frozen in time with most of the exhibits dating back to the mid seventies. Cesar Manrique (whose vision this was) died in 1992 and I suspect that not much has changed since then
There is a modern restaurant below (with great Manrique design), although empty when I visited. The whole thing is incredibly low key - I drove past it the first time because it is not well signed, the gift shop was closed and there were no guide books
I was glad I asked because they produced instead an audio guide on a small paddle and this was invaluable - unfortunately it did not cover a significant number of the exhibits. And with Spanish as the only language in use (I couldn't understand the titles of many of the paintings), it was lacking as an international attraction imho. Without this, I would have given it a lower score - most people seemed to be wandering round fairly aimlessly
Only €2.50 to get in so excellent value for money - I found it a stimulating hour or so
