Nice enough and at 4 euro entry fee, very good value as well. As it's pretty much on the outskirts of Arrecife we chose to visit by car (plenty of free parking available) formerly a defence fort it's been re-invented as an interesting art gallery....More

If you like Modern Art there is a some great quality works in an unusual setting. A little bit out of town with a great restaurant with views of the port. Well worth a lunchtime visit.

One of our 6 attractions, and well worth a visit. My son was not keen on visiting an art museum, but he loved this castle. It is beautifully maintained and well laid out, we spent quite a while exploring this castle. Don't forget to look...More

An interesting place to visit if you like modern art. Take time to watch the film by participants who set it up with Caesar Manrique, a fascinating insight into the problems created by officials on the island at the time. Opened in 1976 with a...More

This museum is very disappointed. The collection is very small and with no logic. If you do not have time do not waste your time !More

With only €4 entrance charge, this super little gallery is well worth a visit. Some particularly good sculptures. The building itself was as impressive as the contemporary art work.

Building is excellent but did not find Picasso or Miro. Not a lover of the paintings that were on display but the sculptures were interesting especially the horses and riders in the sea nearby

A beautiful old castle turned art gallery. There were some fantastic paintings by Gonzalo Chillida on display when we were there and the building itself is so lovely, right next to the sea. Great bar downstairs too.

We were likely fortunate in that we had not realised the magical wonders awaiting us at the rear end of this Castillo. We arrived and sauntered about the building admiring the structure and art and arrived to a quaint stoned stair case with a lovely...More
