We walked past this place twice every day for a week, but never found it open! There are a couple of cannon outside, but that's about it.

When we went the castle was closed but you can walk around and it is really quite cute for a castle. But if you look along the dock you will see hand painted large rocks with every famous face you can imagine on them. Must of spent an hour looking at all the different ones they had. I personally loved... More

This small castle is in a good spot near Playa Jardin, so if you get bored of the beach between 10am - 1pm on certain days then it is good to have a wander around the castle, where it is cool and quiet. All of the small rooms were very plain - laminate flooring and plain white walls with the... More

This is only open as an arts venue for a few hours each day. When we went it was empty, you get a better idea of the building by walking round the outside. Easy to get to as it next to the beach.

Looks interesting, building, canons and so on... but that's it... nice view to ocean... visit when you will be in Puerto, but doesn't worth if it's not on your way

An old building with interesting history, worth to go and have a look at. Not a place to spend a lot of time at.

This is described as a castle but is much smaller than that and does not take long to visit. I would recommend going to visit if you are heading to the Playa Jardin or are staying in the area. It is an interesting building and the interior has been recently refurbished. There was an art exhibition on when we were... More
