El Torre del Infantado is in the very centre of the town of Potes, you cannot miss it. Only €3 entry. Although nothing is written in English it is still worth a visit if you are strolling by. It showcases the history of the written...More

Fascinating exhibitions; particularly if you have some knowledge of The Book of Revelation. We have no Spanish so was great fun working out what was going on. Only had to resort to Google Translate once. Quizzes and interactive displays. Great view from the top. All...More

Like other visitors have already pointed out, this museum has nothing to do with the history of the Tower, who built it or even of Potes itself. Rather it houses 4 floors dedicated to Beata of Santo Toribio fame and the Book of the Apocalypse....More

Worth a visit for the views from the top, otherwise the displays are all in Spanish so weren't very interesting. It was very cheap to get in €3 for adults and €1.50.

We popped in here after an exciting trip to the mountaintop in Fuente De. It was very interesting to see some of the things inside and get a nice view of Potes from the top. It's quite cheap to get in so worth a visit...More

We popped in here while staying in Potes after seeing the reviews. Although a dated 1500's building on the outside it is a modern delight on the inside! There are great views to be had from the rooftop over the quaint town, and several exhibitions...More
