Castillo de San Gabriel

Originally built in 1574, the Castillo de San Gabriel defended Arrecife Harbour for only a few years before being destroyed by the Algerian Pirate Morato Arraez in 1586.

The castle was rebuilt in 1599 and was used for military purposes through the 1950s. Currently, it houses the Archaeological Museum.
