  • Mirador de la Atalaya is a vantage point on the Hill, on the arc of the road GC-21 just before the exit to the center of the village of Artenara. On the right side of the road coming from the North-East is a small car park, which after the ramp is a panorama terrace, overlooking the magnificent panorama of Artenara and its surrounding mountains. An interesting fact is that on the panoramic terrace is a two-piece sculpture which is the expression of a tribute to workers the protection of the environment for their work to preserve the original character of Gran Canaria which resulted in granting the island by the UNESCO title World Biosphere Reserve.

  • Breathtaking scenery. Beautiful views and photo places. Green valleys, rocky mountains and narrow serpentine roads. Definitely worth a trip.
  • I love the area of Atalaya. It’s a very small and quite village which is the highest village at the island. You can enjoy drinks or tapas with an amazing view to the landscape and mountings. Especially the sunset is awesome. Really amazing cruising by car day time and during the sunset. There are many spots where you even are above the sky and this is a nice moment.
  • The artwork at this Mirador was the highlight of this stop. So much more impressive than the actual views. The vistas from the village, down the road, are much better.
  • It's located in a good spot or perch but the views are not that great. It is very well maintained
  • Great view, nice place to sit down and have some rest after a long walking.
