    Worth the tour to the old Dutch lighthouse and see roqueno sunset, is the maximum.

    You have to go up and see the lighthouse, although the lighthouse in remodeling, the important thing is not so much the lighthouse but the view, you can see all El Gran Roque and the nearby islands, ahhh makes much breeze, and no hikes barefoot, you can take rubber shoes.

    Relatively easy climb. Go to sneakers, pants and pass repellent. The photos are wonderful. Not to mention the setting sun was one of the most beautiful I've ever seen. Worth and best, you don't pay anything!
