  The Castle
by Gerrem

The earthquake of 1755 destroyed most of it but the remains of the Moorish castle are still impressive, and the huge underground water reservoir is still used by the city today. You can visit the castle and you have a great view from there! Today they are still doing archeological excavations. We could take a look on these jobs.

Address: At the top of Lagos

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
