Roque de los Muchachos is a rocky mound at the highest point on the island of La Palma in the Canary Islands, Spain. The rocks are found at an elevation of 2,423 m above sea level, not far from the Observatorio del Roque de los Muchachos, where some of the world's largest telescopes are situated; the altitude and the dryness of the climate here give rise to excellent observing conditions. The rocks are contained with the Parque Nacional de la Caldera de Taburiente.From the Roque, one can see the islands of Tenerife, El Hierro and La Gomera.

  • We were there with very clear weather and had a very nice view. Is definitely recommended, you can do a long way with car and on top of a walk.

  • Even if the driveway is curvy and attractive, the views across the island and also Tenerife, La Gomera and El Hierro very worthwhile!

  • Wonderful landscapes at 2426m level :) It is not difficult to walk. Santa Cruz de La Palma is necessary more or less 1, 5-2 hours by car.
