You can hardly miss the Mirador. On the road there is a sign showig the way to the viewpoint.
On the top of the mountain, you can park your car at the big carpark and enjoy first glances of the panorama. Parking is gratis (as of February 2007).
Then you pass the big entrance gate in order to savour the breathtaking view. Admission is free here, too (as of February 2007). First of all, you enter a beautiful garden.
Now you can let your eyes wander across the valley to the west coast, the north of the island and the mountains. In the north you can even see Lanzarote and the dunes of Corralejo on a clear day.
For a fee, you can borrow binoculars. Outside it can be very windy.
Inside the building there is a snack bar where you can have a bite to eat or a cup of coffee.
Moreover, there are seats from where you can also enjoy the view through the big picture-window.
In the last few years, the Mirador was sometimes closed up. If so, you cannot drive to the carpark - the barrier at the entrance is closed.
