well, castle wouldnot be a right word for it, specially if u have already seen the magnificient alcazabas in spain......

nevertheless, dating back to moorish era, these well preserve walls and towers give you a very fair idea of how old city walls would have looked like... and they had offered a very good protection from thieves, pirates and slave traders etc.....

since many of the accomodaions are inside these walls, u can take up 15 to 20 minutes and see around all of them. Do note the difference of older (Stone) and newer (blocked) construction on the northern west parking....

Walking through this large ancient structure helps keep in perspective the actual age of Lagos. It's easy to forget it has a very old past when walking through the new apartment blocks.

Add it to your walk around the town centre for sure, or on your way to the beach.
