Great View

Get there early, parking is limited. The view is great! The museum is very ok, seemed a little juvenile.

worth a visit
Jan 2020
We visted this year after almost ignoring it for the past few years. We thought it would be gimmicky but it is anything but! The drive up from the main road is on a tarmac road so that was good but there is quite limited parking at the top. HAving said that, it is absolutely worth the effort. There is a very small entrance fee and the museum is arranged through various old rooms in the castle. There is a history of piracy in the islands, stories of real life pirates as well as fictional ones and there are some excellent models.
The views are stunning and we are very glad we finally made the effort to visit.

Road barred
Jan 2020 • Couples
Went three times yesterday and each time there were several cars turning around like I had to. There were barriers across the base of the road up the hill, we could not get in. No notice on there website or at gate to say why........

A nice drive up to the castle
Jan 2020
It was great to drive up to the castle and enjoy the wonderful views. The castle has a very long history of piracy and this story is told with posters and video presentations. The castle has s very gory past and the Lanzarote population had much to endure from centuries of piracy. The local people would hide in the caves, rather than being captured or killed.
From the top of the castle the panoramic views are fantastic. Only 3 Euro entrance fee.

Great value and very interesting
Jul 2019 • Family
Really enjoyed wandering round the fort and learning about is history. Some surfaces are a bit uneven and people with young children will need to take care but it is defiantly worth a visit. Lots of stairs to climb so be aware of infirm.

Pirate Museum
Jun 2019 • Friends
We drove up to this in our hire car, I would NOT suggest walking up especially if you have young children. It is a very steep hill to drive up and not a massively wide road for other cars to pass with no barriers (if you are not a fan of heights or a confident driver I wouldn’t suggest this). The views were amazing however very steep drops on either side of the castle, unsure where the area for children to run around is (as mentioned in another review). Car park is very small so I can imagine in peak season quite tricky to park/ manoeuvres around.
The inside of the museum was ok, if you were struggling to find things to do.

Another good place to stop
Mar 2019 • Couples
If you are exploring the island in a car this is another good place to stop for a visit. I personally found the exibition of the pirates and the history interesting, but I'm sure it will not for everyone.

Star shaped Castle next to a crater
Apr 2019 • Couples
Drove up otherwise it’s a long walk, views are spectacular and the entrance fee is €3 each. For over 200 years piratesFrench,English, Dutch and corsairvplaged these island as it was a staging point for the new world, even Nelson tried to capture Santa Cruz. The displays are well labelled in Spanish & English with interactive displays which reflect the suffering of the local populace who took refuge here or in Nr & Mrs Greens cave.

A fantastic bit of History!
Apr 2019 • Family
We saw this place on trip advisor and looked at the good reviews, so we decided to head up there. I have to say, the viewpoint from up there was absolutely breathtaking. The Museum was actually a small castle on the top of a small volcano. The information was in small sections of easy to read and manageable pieces of text in Spanish, German and English. With models of the castle and other landmarks surrounding the area along with factual videos and good decorations, this is a short, affordable trip for families of any size to enjoy, whether they are children, teenagers or adults. A general must do!
