Free entry, with an interesting display /exhibition on Spanish history. A well done reconstruction. Don't forget the lighthouse nextdoor.

Well worth our drive, hour and 15 mins. There was an exhibition inside but not really sure what it was all about, explanation in Spanish. Displays and commentary on castle in both Spanish and English. Good views and great photos taken. Nice to sit and stroll around castle, lighthouse and marina. Coffee enjoyed at marina looking back at castle. Free... More

This is a lovely little castle by the harbour and it's free. Lots of interesting art on display and lovely views from the top. They have spent a lot of money restoring it with a big stage and sliding roof to open it up and amazing marble staircases. It was about a 40 minute stroll along the promenade from our... More

Almost on the beach so just about as true a sea castle as any built of sand. It is just about the same colour too. A mainly rebuilt small building. In a relaxing area but it was closed when we were there. Easy parking right next to it.

Visited whilst in the port area. Very impressive from the outside with cannons etc and more so inside. Free entry with a lift to most floors. Great views from the roof. When we visited there were a number of exhibitions to visit and a wedding being set up in the main tower. Another advantage is the availability of toilets. To... More

We took a taxi from our hotel to look around here and the port area, It's quite an interesting place and they now have information in English which helped us as our Spanish is limited. The area outside the castle is beautiful and gives quite a few photo opportunities.

A good place to visit and very interesting information on the area given by audio visual aids. If going in the mornong make sure to give yourself time as they close at 1.00p.m not the normal Spanish closing times.
