We happened upon this place so decided to visit,there is a charge to go around the castle but it is the views which you come for which were wonderful,not the easiest place to get around because of small narrow steps that aside it was ok.

In order to get access to the castle you have to pay to get in the pirate museum but it is only €3 per person with children under 12 go free. The museum is not massive but is quite interesting finding out about the pirates...More

At the top of a hill overlooking a huge crater. There are wonderful views as you can walk around the crater itself. The museum is quite interesting and from the ramparts there are very good views of Teguise

Well worth the drive - beautiful views all around and some island history. The castle is visible from miles away literally perched on the edge of a crater (see Google earth satellite view). The entrance was easy to find off the LZ 10 (easy to...More

The steep drive to the castle can be fraught with trying to park. But we’ll worth a visit. The displays in the pirate museum are not brilliant, but give you enough information to enjoy the visit. The views are excellent.

It’s very easy to see the castle from the town of Teguise. Although not very well signposted the entrance can’t be missed. There’s a steep tarmac road up to the top of the volcano and castle. The museum itself is well worth a visit and...More

A great location to spend an hour or so. Set high up on the rim of a volcano sits this old castle overlooking Teguise. Great views of the town and island. A road winds up to the castle that has a small amount of parking...More

Hi, there is a toilet - a very clean one. Opposite side of the entrance. No Cafe, but there is a patisserie on the main road prior to turning up the hill to the Castle, on your right hand side.
