Museum in Teguise

This modest yet fascinating museum is located in the imposing 16th-century Castillo de Santa Bárbara. This is the oldest castle in the Canaries and really looks the part, perched up on Guanapay peak with sweeping views across the plains. The exhibits detail the numerous attacks Lanzarote suffered at the hands of pirates from across Europe and Africa during the 16th century, when Teguise was the island’s capital. It's great for kids.
