  • The view from the cliff is amazing. Nice fruit juices!

  • This is beautiful historic monument, with a great view of the neighboring cities and the Caribbean sea. In the castle there is a wonderful restaurant serving typical food, at fair prices. The only down side is that there is no information on the castle, unless you are there with people who know, it might just be a beautiful building.

  • It's a beautiful castle with amazing views. Plus, it has a restaurant and the good is just delicious. It is a romantic place and it is a wonderful plan to know more about Barranquilla s history.

  • Absolutely breathtaking! Like no other place 8ve been before. The house is not a big deal it's a colonial Spanish home very typical very average but the site that was spectacular. The wind blows hard enough to knock you over and take all of your problems away. There's tons of room to explore but definitely not a place for hyperactive kids the security there is not the best I mean in regards to railings and such.

  • It's a very nice view and relax environment the food and drinks are very good I recommend the coconut limonade delicious Sundays at noon is really packet so be patient with the waitress
