Museo de Historia de Arrecife information
Located on a little islet just off the seafront promenade, this small museum is based in the 16th-century Castillo de San Gabriel. Exhibits include information on the island's geology, flora and fauna as well as pre-Hispanic life and the conquest, but all information is in Spanish only. Head to the roof for an amusingly shot video of the island and good views of the city.
