Very close to the capital, this mountain top offers breath-taking view of the volcanic crater below with a mountaintop golf course on one side, views of ocean on another and views of Las Palmas on another side.

We really love this place even it took around hour to get there. It is really worth it to visit even the weather might be soo hot there.

We went here with a bustour (just like many others). Unfortunatly it wasn't a clear day, so you couldn't look that far. Though it's still worth it, with the mountains and villages in the fog.

Visited the crater and observation point during a private tour. Beautiful scenery with a 360 degree view just a short drive from Las Palmas.

Good view from the peak, easy tor reach by car. Walking around the caldera rim takes about 45 minutes, with a nice trail.
