MIAC- Castillo de San José

The International Contemporary Art Museum-Castillo de San José is located near Puerto Naos and Arrecife, capital of the island.

It was built between 1776 and 1779 under the mandate of King Charles III. Its advantageous location on top of a cliff, was an added asset to the powerful Castle of San Gabriel, and made it an essential spot to defend Arrecife from and its port against the threat of modern states in conflict with the Spanish Empire.

It was abandoned for almost a century, when it became less necessary to use it as a fortress.

César Manrique convinced the authorities of the island to transform the ancient fortress into an art gallery, and the International Contemporary Art Museum opened in 1976.
