  • Although it seems not worth the time to upload it, the view from above is grndiosa, especially at dusk or dawn, worth it!

  • It's a great landscape to see the sunset. Need to go because the way tennis is for stones. and pass fills repellents because at dusk.

  • The rise isn't anything complicated, some minutes of not very strong walking help to enjoy a complete view of Gran Roque. It's very nice to see the colors of the sunset from there but you have to be prepared for the usual mosquitoes of the time.
