  Castillo de San Jose - Arrecife
by Bernd_L

This castle is one of the few reasons to visit Lanzarotes capital Arrecife. It has been built as a fortress to protect the harbour. And it has been used as a gun-powder arsenal.

Nowaday it is the home of the Museum of Contemporary Art. Here you can find some paintings and artworks of Cesar Manrique, Lanzarotes most famous artist.

There is also a restaurant on the site.

Opening Hours:
Museum: Everyday 11.00 - 21.00
Castle: Everyday 11.00 - 01.00

Directions: Near the harbour of Arrecife, next to the waterfront.
