Mirador del Sol, Merlo
(4.6/5 based on 900+ reviews on the web)
Follow a rustic yet paved mountain path up to Mirador del Sol and you will be awarded with panoramic vistas of the city, neighboring towns, the valley, and the mountains. Walk around, pick a picnic spot, or have a drink at a cafe sitting 1,470 m (4,823 ft) above sea level. Several stops along the way offer opportunities to zipline, horseback ride, and paraglide. If you continue up the road, you will come to the edge of the Sierra Mountains, where the paved path turns into a hiking track. Plan your Mirador del Sol visit and explore what else you can see and do in Merlo using our Merlo trip builder.

  • It is a very nice lookout before reaching the edge, climb with caution and is advisable to not go when there is fog. Beautiful view to take the camera and have unforgettable memories!

  • We went the whole family, including mascot. We enjoyed the location, the views are spectacular, ideal for photography enthusiasts. Good range of craft products, although I think it could be improved the gastronomical offer. Recommended super ride. Never bring coats, are over.

  • Very nice views of Merlo and crafts jobs... no place to eat when you arrive. Have to be careful because it is paved road but tourists use it for walks... must drive carefully.

  • The road to the ridge is beautiful. You're going up along roads curve and curve and always up. There are times that is a little bit of fear because it is long cliff, but it is worth. Unfortunately when we were was cloudy so it could not see the city of Merlo. It will need to be!

  • Excellent view and really is easy vehicular access since it is paved road. Then these 8km and 1000 meters more than another beautiful great viewpoint; but that will be for another review...

  • Road to the edge of the Hill have this viewpoint where we get a view of all Merlo and surroundings. A spectacular view, mainly in the evening. See the city by night from there above must be spectacular but not recommend to descend at night since the signage is not the best. There are crafts and places to stop to look at the landscape.
