A lovely old building that is worth a visit to, could do with having an information board outside telling you about the history of it as there's nothing at the Castillo telling you about its history.

Not much to see to be honest. It's a tower with what appears to be a bell tower on top. The views down to the coves nearby are worth a look.

Worth a climb up from Marina Rubicon to this tower. Interesting format with the bell tower on top making it unique to the ones in Fuerteventura. Would have loved to go inside but it wasn't open, but still worth walking around to admire the views both sides.

The first thing I thought of when I saw it was that it was a Martello Tower similar to those we have on the south and east coast of England, but this seems to predate the Napoleonic Wars, it was built to fend off pirates.

This historic landmark is situated on the edge of the cliff and has an information board outside in various languages. You can look inside but there is no access. If you visit, the best part about your visit will be the stunning views of the coastline.....

This tower is a similar structure to a martello tower. You can look into it, but there is no access. There is a very informative board giving it's history. One side is in English.

Situated at a viewpoint on a clifftop, be careful if you visit at night, there is nothing to stop you going straight over the edge lol. It's an important part of the local history, used as a lookout for pirates approaching, worth a visit for the education value but also the whole area around is lovely with some spectacular views.

Great place to watch sunset. There's an information board to learn some history of this building. You can't get in, but it's still a worth of visit, because location is nearby Marina Rubicon and Avenida Maritima

Apparently this is the oldest historical site on the island. It makes a striking landmark but don't get over excited. A lovely destination for a sunset stroll.
