“Exploring the island”

Castillo de San Gabriel
Ranked #14 of 44 things to do in Arrecife
Attraction details
Reviewed 14 December 2017 via mobile

Decided to walk out to the castle on what was a very windy day. Nice place to visit though. Not much to see inside so whether you want to pay the €3 entrance fee is up to you. All information is in Spanish only but we were advised this on entrance. Still worth a look around.

Worth going in to see the building and the view from the roof back to Arricife. There are a lot of information boards but strangely for a tourist site, no translations into any other language.

This fortress stands on a small island on the coast at Arrecife reached by two footpaths. One has a bridge the other a drawbridge. You can pay to go in and have a guided tour however we didn’t as there is no English translation. Great all round views would’ve been essential for this type of building and this has just that.

The Castillo sits out on a causeway and is a nice walk in itself. To enter is 3 euros each, but unfortunately nothing is in English. There is however multi lingual commentary of the Castillo from the Land train that passes by.

It has a beautiful view worth the visit. You can go inside for 3 euros but all information is in Spanish (although the staff mentioned that prior to buying the tickets) ...it is a pity. You may go up with the same ticket.
