  • Breathtaking place, but best visited on a day without too many clouds. The roads leading to it can be a bit steep and narrow and I would strongly recommend returning in daylight. Sturdy shoes are recommended, as there are even more magnificent views to be had if you walk up some mountains/hills. Make sure to stop at every location that is marked, as the surroundings change after every corner.
  • Great National Park - stunning views and a cable car ride up Spain's highest mountain. If you need to go to the peak a pass is required prior to your visit ( from the Santa Cruz Parks Office - this is a 40 min. quite difficult walk, but it's not essential). Take your time to explore the surroundings.
  • Excellent center to explore the park from. Good selection of refreshments, air conditioning, clean. Good advice about walking routes and amazing scenery.
  • Nervous drivers don't drive your gonna have heart palpitations. Great views along the way worth going just for the journey up alone many view points along the way so fill your boots with many breathtaking views. Make it an early trip of you drive so you can come back down in daylight. Coach is probably the better option though
  • Best experience on the island. Definitely take cable car! And bring some warm clothes!
