“Well worth the stroll out to have a look”

Castillo de San Gabriel
Ranked #3 of 34 things to do in Arrecife
Attraction details
Reviewed 12 January 2018

You really can't miss this building when you walk along the waterfront at Arrefife as it dominates the surrounding area. Well worth going out by one access point and returning by the drawbridge route.

Worth a visit but no information in English which really means you can’t get the full experience. The location is fantastic and really worth seeing. The staff are so helpful and friendly. What a location.

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.
