PHOTOS OF THE CASTILLO DE SAN JOSÉ

Situated on a cliff, the San José Castle was built by King Charles III in 1771 to defend the island against attacks from Berbers and pirates. Two hundred years later, in 1976, it was opened as an international museum of contemporary art featuring a large collection of works by Canary and local artists.

The renovation by César Manrique is faithful to the original interior, with only a restaurant added on the bottom floor.

The following is a selection of the best photographs, which can be enlarged by clicking on them.
