San Gabriel Castle

Castillo de San Gabriel, Lanzarote, Islas CanariasIt was built between 1571 and 1573 to defend the island from attacks by pirates and moriscos. One of the most important attacks recorded was in 1585 when the pirate Morato Arráez burnt the castle down. This is why Felipe II ordered a new castle to be built with a walkway made of stone and a drawbridge which connected the castle to Arrecife. In 1972 the castle was restored and converted into the Archaeological and Ethnographic Museum which we can enjoy today.

Later, El Almacén became a multi purpose centre which included an art gallery (El Aljibe), a library, a small theatre, a language school, a bar/restaurant, a shop selling music , crafts and local pottery as well as many other things.
The local government finally acquired the Almacén and following several changes it became the Department of Education and Culture. Nowadays, El Almacén is the administrative centre for the department of culture on the island and is part of the local government.
