The view is unbelievable in this place, it takes you back in time and the food was pretty good. The casuela was fresh and full of flavor.

I was really expecting a castle like the ones in Cartagena. The castillo is a very big and old house with a stunning view and lots and lots of wind. The visit is worth it. It's free and it's got a nice view, but that's all there is.

The castle its simple. Nothing fancy. Just a plan for the weekend. Great view to the beach and ocean.

Had lunch here. loved the views from all sides by the beach. food was good. dont order ribs as this is probably not ordered often and it tasted like it had been in the freezer a while.

This is a nice construction outside Barranquilla, it offers a nice view of the cliffs and the Caribbean sea, it also has a nice restaurant.

This place has the most amazing views to witness a sundown in Barranquilla… the wind, the sea, the air… I didn't get to do much other than just watch the spectacular caribbean sun meet the horizon. Great place to just chill.

It's just an old building with an okay view, nothing special about it. Not even beautiful view. I didn't want to use more time than 15 mins there, they might make good food but this view and place wasn't even worth waiting for food.

There was a wedding when we went so we didn't get to go inside. But the view outside was stunning around sunset!
