The first stop is the San José Castle, a fortress built between 1776 and 1779- It was a defensive bastion against pirate attacks and now houses the International Museum of Contemporary Art (MIAC).
Then you continue your journey to the Recova Municipal of Arrecife, located in the street Manuel Miranda. The Recova is an old and cozy market of handicrafts and products of the country with a nice cafeteria to enjoy a pleasant breakfast.
Very close by you will find the Church of San Ginés, which has its origin in the first hermitage of the town, built in 1574.
Then you return to the waterfront to pass by the Bridge of the Balls (Puente de las Bolas), symbol of Arrecife and logo of our company.
It was built in the eighteenth century to serve as a connection with the islet where the Castle of San Gabriel is located, built in the sixteenth century as a fort against piracy, in fact now houses the Museum of Piracy.
You can leave your bike parked near the bridge and go shopping on Calle Real, the main shopping area of Arrecife.
When you return to your bike you should head back and stop at the Charco de San Ginés in order to complete your Arrecife route with a tapa and a beer in one of the many bars in this lively area.
