Looks interesting, building, canons and so on... but that's it... nice view to ocean... visit when you will be in Puerto, but doesn't worth if it's not on your way

An old building with interesting history, worth to go and have a look at. Not a place to spend a lot of time at.

This is described as a castle but is much smaller than that and does not take long to visit. I would recommend going to visit if you are heading to the Playa Jardin or are staying in the area. It is an interesting building and the interior has been recently refurbished. There was an art exhibition on when we were... More

I didn't find this that interesting but some people may do. I saw other interesting places that are not highlighted on this review page.

Did not think a great deal about the Castillo, however if you go around the back you will see what could be a moonscape off rock sculptures. You can walk along the beach and have a coffee overlooking the sea and beach

Building outside ok, nothing special, was closed when we got there so couldn't get in. Got one cannon outside and a post and a small white tower on one corner of the building. Looks more interesting from the beach rather that the walkway.

The so-called castle is a modest stronghold from the 16th century and does not compare in any way with spectacular fortresses as known from continental Spain
