We hadn't realised until buying a ticket that this is now an art gallery, within an old castle. We were warned before handing over our money, so I suspect this happens a lot! It's beautifully finished inside, and a refreshing change from the rest of...More

May be not easy to find, but once there, you will have a marvellous example of a Perfect resturation. Most of the Castle is used as art Exhibitions. Youhave to pay a small entrance fee.

The castle is now the exhibition hall for Martin Chirini, famous Las Palmas and world renowned sculptor. Well worth a visit.
