The castle is the home to a collection by a Canarian sculpture which wasn't really my cup of tea but the restoration of the castle is imaginative and interesting. There is a lovely cafe in the park nearby.

I looked on Google to find a gallery and this was a shirt said from my apt. The fortress is amaxing in its own right but the Martin Chirino exhibition inside was stunning.

I thought we were going to see the inside of this historic castle therefore I was very disappointed to see it was just a modern art gallery... what a shame...

I have mixed feelings about this place. I am glad it has been preserved - although knocked about a lot, and I liked the art gallery but I found it all a bit wierd still - worth the entry fee

Were suprised to discover it was a permanent art exhibition - which was fine and we enjoyed it and possibly if it hadn't had private finance it would have been a wreck which would have been a shame

Exhibition of breathtaking steel sculptures in a light, airy, architecturally sympathetic interior. Disappointed to find no access to rooftop.

An amazingly innovative way of presenting the past. The old ruin is perfectly preserved and walkways allow you to view it from inside and out, at different levels. The modern structure is crisp and compliments the old, a delight if you enjoy architecture. For Art...More

Easy to find and quite interesting but overall disappointed. Couldn't get outside at the top for any views, mostly about a display of sculptures. Definitely not worth the 4euros entrance fee.
