Small little fort right next to a beach. It appeared to be open when we were there but we did not go in as we had used temporary parking and just had enough time to walk around it and take a few photos.

Was free entry & was nice to have a little walk around. If you like art I'd recommend going here as lots of drawings/paintings

Really lovely little castle which is also free admission! Wonderful little discovery we made! It was open at like 8pm at night so we went in during our evening stroll! Beautiful little building with good local history!

A short walk from the beach is this "Castle" It is very clean and tidy. You are not able to go inside

Castillo de San Felipe is situated in Puerto de La Cruse in the North of Tenerife on the black sandy beach. It is a nice piece of the local history.

Little fortress from the 16th century of a defensive nature. Nothing interesting to explore. Basically the same walls.

Saw from the outside but never managed to find it open. The stone piles round the back are good to look at.
