Lanzarote’s Castles

Did you know Lanzarote has not one, not two… but four castles?

There are two in Arrecife, quite close to each other actually, one in the old capital of Teguise and one in the south in Playa Blanca.

You can go inside all of them, except the Playa Blanca one.

We have written about all four of them in the past. Here are the links to each of them:


Castillo San Gabriel

Castillo San José , which also hosts the International Museum of Contemporary Art (MIAC) and it’s the only one that it’s part of the CACTs, the official Centers of Art, Culture and Tourism.


Castillo Santa Barbara

Playa Blanca

Castillo de Las Coloradas

Have you seen them all? Which one is your favourite?
