This small fortification isn't open to visit. There is a board explaining what it was used for and that is about it. There are some nice walks and sunsets to enjoy, on this promenade which leads to the harbour at Playa Blanca from the Sandos Papagayo. Worth a look if you are near but not worth a special trip unless... More

Located on a cliff top in between Papagayo and the marina at Playa Blanca this historical fort is interesting but we went twice and on both times it was locked so you could not enter. PLEASE put on good footwear for this location!

There is not much to see here unless it was open. Even then there is not much inside from what we could see. A great landmark and there is a lot of history behind this location. Great views over the ocean. I wouldnt rush to visit unless you were passing

Nice building with some of Lanzarote's history attached to it. Nice to stop and look around while also taking in the amazing views of Playa Blanca coast line

if you're walking by - you'll want to take a look, but essentially nothing to see here, not open to public, but a nice setting up on a cliff overlooking bays on both sides.

On a walk from our hotel to Marina Rubicon we passed this tourist attraction. There is not a lot to see and the structure itself is not large. However, there are some spectacular views and pictures to be taken. Wouldn't go out if my way to visit here but ok to see in passing.

Thank Absfab
