Fodor's Expert Review Castillo de San Cristóbal

Santa Cruz de Tenerife Museum/Gallery

The walls of this castle were uncovered when the car park under the Plaza de España was being built. The site is now a small museum that includes the 18th-century "Tigre Cannon" that reputedly cost Britain's Admiral Nelson his right arm in an attack he led in 1797. Entrance to the museum is via a stairway opposite the lake.
