Trip Planner: South America / Colombia / Atlantico Department / Puerto Colombia / Castillo de Salgar
Overlooking the water from atop a windy cliff, Castillo de Salgar stands out among the inspiring scenery with its bright yellow color. Having served many purposes since its construction in 1848--including prison, colony, and customs control house--the renovated clifftop building now functions primarily as a restaurant and event space. Climb to the castle's second floor to enjoy panoramic views out over the Caribbean Sea. Cap off the experience with a delicious meal at the onsite restaurant.

It is closed for now but you can enjoy the landscape. There is a restoration inside the building. The landscape is amazing from this height.
Worth a stop just for the ocean views provided, really stunning. The cliffs give an amazing view of the ocean and waves crashing on the shore. It's really windy at the castle, and you can feel and taste the salt spray on windy days. If you have little children, keep them close as the access to the cliff is unguarded and could be quite dangerous for unsupervised small children. The castle is being converted to a mall and is not presently open. If it does open, would be an amazing venue for the views alone. Highly recommend seeing the castle. The entrance is gated, but admission is free.
