Even though this fort is almost 400 years old it is in excellent condition. Authentic 15th century Spanish cannons add even more realism to the visit. There are some amazing people who work here that can explain the history of this masterpiece.

This place has sometimes lectures and small concerts as in March 2018. Often closed. Inside a hall for approximately 80-100 persons depending on an occasion.

Along the black beach, this small fortification has been restored with quite good criteria both from a conservative and an upgrading and updating point of view. The main hall with the nice archoes is now a conference center equipped with the last facilities and equipment....More

Not a great deal to see at this little 16th. Fort when we visited. The fort itself was not open and we could only look around the outside and the courtyard with the canons. It is adjacent to a beach of black rocks and boulders...More

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
