Despite a recent break in which resulted in the cash registration being stolen the museum was still operational. The lady at the front knowledge and ability to adapt to different languages was phenomenal. A small museum with a good basic history. Given the variety of international visitors it was a shame the signs and information are only in one. Missing an opportunity to share knowledge and information.

It is set in a great setting, and looks very well kept, but it is a trek to get there and very little to see. It wasn't open when we got there which didn't help!

Looks impressive from the outside and is in fact built sturdily enough but as for a tourist attraction it’s not that good.
There is a slow control of entry to limit the amount of people inside the castle at any one time. Whilst waiting in the queue, we heard a member of staff taking about the island and castle, giving visitors loads of info. Then she let several people in. Depending on your language you may be able to skip the queue a bit if you have heard what they were saying but were further down the line. We did this as people were leaving and she started speaking in German and we were allowed in.
Disappointment didn’t end there as all the displays are in Spanish. Whenever we have visited historic sites anywhere else, displays are in multiple languages. Don’t get me wrong, there is lots to see here but if you don’t speak the lingo you’re knackered.
A note to the admin of this castle......you really need to get the lighting of the displays sorted as flashing led’s are not the best way to light things up.
Great views from the roof of the castle.
Best of all this is free to enter, tips are welcome.

Nothing special but worth visiting if you are in Arecife. A pleasant walk. Small museum inside- entry fee payable.

Docked here on the cruise and got off for a walk round the city. It’s picturesque as it’s a sea fishing port. The town centre was fairly busy and had a few cafes in the Main Street. The main attraction was the Castillo of SAN Gabriel and it was interesting to read of the history. apart from that there is nothing else exciting going on here.

The pathways to the castle are cobbled stones so may be a problem if requiring assistance but the path and castle are a piece of history

This castle is really really small. The best is way to the castle. The castle is a little museum. Nothing special. But view from the top of the castle is beautiful. Entrance fee.

Was out walking on a beautiful day and came across this. So we walked up to it and it was quite busy. We never went in to it just walked around it but a bit of culture and was different to see something on a beach like this.

It was interesting to look around but none of the information boards were in English so it was difficult to understand . The guy that was on the door did give an explination to start with so this helped.

Staying close by so this was worth a walk by, beautiful walk and a lovely looking small castle. Didn’t go in as only allows so many in at once... The views out to sea are great, some info about it in English outside would have been lovely. €3 euros to get in I believe 💕
