In the late afternoon, after the sun is not so high, we want to visit the fortress "Castillo de San Juan de las Aguilas". The opening hours are in the morning from 1000 to 1300 o'clock or in the afternoon from 1600 to 1800 o'clock. The fortress is a good 80 meters above sea level and offers a good view all around the sea and also over the town. In its present form, the fortress was built at the end of the 1700's and restored in recent years, which can also be seen. Admission is 2 EUR / p. Not quite fitting in the image of the fortress is the built of an iron scaffold elevator, which is clearly from recent years and does not fit the rest of the fortress. Just below the fortress is a well-frequented restaurant which offers a nice view of the bay of Anguilas.
