The viewpoint par excellence in la palma

Here you’ll find some incredible views into the infinite while completely surrounded by nature. This is La Palma's viewpoint par excellence: el Roque de los Muchachos.

Here, we’re in the highest part of the island, 2,426 meters above sea level. It’s a true delight to be able to take in these views, as we’re in one of the most visited places on the island, and the most special place in La Palma (in my opinion) -- the Caldera de Taburiente National Park.

The viewpoint is at such a high elevation that you can see the other islands, Tenerife, El Heirro, and La Gomera, if the skies cooperate.

As you can see in the pictures, the island and its environment come from volcanic origins. This distinguishes the predominant green color from the martian reds that give this place a unique beauty.

The park was declared a natural reserve in 1954, and in 2002 was made part of UNESCO’s Biosphere program.

Once you’re here (and it’s not easy to get to – as it lies above curvy mountain streets), make sure to check out the observatory. It has the biggest and most modern telescopes in the world. Truly impressive.

You have to go to the top, what are you waiting for?!

Where you can touch the sky with fingers

The impressive viewpoint of the Roque de los Muchachos is one of the most famous TOURIST points of the island of La Palma. From its 2426 meters high all Taburiente boiler can be seen, volcanic formation that dominates the relief of the island. The peculidad of La Palma is that it has one of the most clear skies on the planet due to its environmental quality and some unique physical characteristics. The location of the island in the Atlantic Ocean and its peculiar climate causes the formation of clouds occurs between one and two thousand meters high. These natural factors make exercising clouds mirror natural light and prevent pollution of coastal populations difficult night observation of the stars. It is the best we can make out from all the Teide in the distant. As therefore the viewpoint of Roque shares its existence by the astrophysicist Observatory.

Donde puedes tocar el cielo con los dedos

El impresionante mirador del Roque de los Muchachos es uno de los puntos turísticos más famosos de la isla de La Palma. Desde sus 2426 metros de altura puede observarse toda la Caldera del Taburiente, formación volcánica que domina el relieve de la isla. La peculidad de La Palma es que posee uno de los cielos más limpios del planeta debido a su calidad ambiental y a unas características físicas singulares.

La ubicación de la isla en medio del océano Atlántico y su peculiar clima provocan que la formación de nubes se produzca entre mil y dos mil metros de altura. Estos factores naturales hacen que las nubes ejerzan de espejo natural e impidan que la contaminación luminosa de poblaciones costeras dificulte la observación nocturna de las estrellas. Lo mejor es que desde allí puedes divisar el Teide en la lejanía.

Así pues, el mirador del Roque comparte su existencia junto al Observatorio Astrofísico.

Startling

I really enjoyed the experience ... If you can go by bus to enjoy the curves and changes of scenery, do not hesitate ... better go pending flywheel q ... And once there, you are impressed by the quiet, calm and those breathtaking views, if you are lucky like me to get a clear day, you can see the Teide and a sea of ​​clouds impressive. 100% recommended.

Sobrecogedor

Me gustó mucho la experiencia...Si podeis ir en bus para disfrutar de las curvas y los cambios de paisaje, no lo dudeis...mucho mejor q ir pendiente del volante... Y una vez alli, te impresiona la quietud, la calma y esas impresionantes vistas que, si tienes la suerte como yo de conseguir un día despejado, te permite ver el Teide y un mar de nubes impresionante.
100% recomendable.

I must visit

The views are breathtaking especially from the latter viewpoint. The road goes to the right of the second viewpoint and then surrounds it. Give a little dizzy but it's worth going there.

Imprescindible visitarlo

Las vistas son impresionantes sobre todo desde el último mirador. El camino sale a la derecha del segundo mirador y luego lo rodea. Da un poco de vértigo pero merece la pena ir hasta allí.
