‪Mirador closed but scenery stunning ‬
זוגות • נוב׳ 2020
‪Friday 13th November and we came across this is a scenic view point, on the top of Morro de la Cruz, while driving from Valle de Santa Ines to Betancuria.

The road leading up to the Mirador is blocked with a barrier across it, however, there is limited parking in front of the barrier. Ignore the opening times displayed, they are wrong, sadly the Mirador is permanently closed.

It is possible to walk up the road to where the Mirador is. It is a good 20 minute walk up steep road to the top. Previously the building was boarded up, but this has been removed, ripped down, so it was possible to walk around the Mirador and its verandas and experience the incredible views

From here we got amazing views of the northern area of the island with an artist's palette of colour. We also could see the dunes as far as Corralejo along with the villages of el Cotillo, La Oliva and Antigua.

We did walk a few extra metres to the top of the mountain, Morro de la, Cruz, which is at 676 metres above sea level

It is disappointing that the mirador building is closed, however, it is still possible to enjoy the views, so definitely worth the effort of the walk up

After our visit checked out the meaning of  mirador, which is a  turret or tower attached to a building and providing an extensive view.

‪Amazing view over the island‬

‪We visited the view point several times - the first time it was shrouded in clouds and looked very mysteriuous. The second time the sun was out and you could see very far.‬

‪Closed with no sign‬
דצמ׳ 2019
‪We drove here on 11/12/19. The visitor centre perched on the hill was closed with a barrier across the road access point. No signs with information. I guess it is now the low season as we have found several places closed.
Despite this we enjoyed the views from the road and statue area.‬

‪Drove 40 mins to find it was closed! Walked up a bit to see a view but I think the main view is at the top and the sign said no trespassing so didn’t want to risk it‬

‪Drove all the way only to find the viewpoint closed with no signs saying why. Poor in my opinion as this is a major tourist attraction. Stopped at the layby and admired the views which were impressive and then drove off. ‬

‪Great View‬

‪Great view from all sides over some impressive landscapes, can be quite windy up here as you are at the top of the hill. Restaurant and facilities up here were closed when we visited.‬

‪Fantastic views but dire tourist facilities‬
אפר׳ 2019
‪My wife and I wanted to see as much of the island’s beauty spots and cultural values as we could fit into our short visit. Morro Velosa was very high on that list.

That said, visitors must be warned about the disgraceful state of the facilities in the Morro Velosa viewpoint building. I am sure that Cesar Manrique (the designer) would turn in his grave if he was alive today. The building itself is impressive, as are the exhibitions and photographs. The views from the terraces are stunning. But what about the café and the toilets?!?

The café is permanently closed. When there are all the necessary facilities there?
The male toilet has no seat in the stall I used – and no top to the water tank. The hand dryers in both the ladies and gents toilets are broken – in fact have notices pinned on them saying they are broken!

Our local guide said that he has stopped taking visitors there. One can get similar views from pull-offs by the roadside nearby.

I wrote to the local tourist office to complain. Initially they did not acknowledge my email and then told me to write to their museum service. No response.

I had told them that I understood that management of this facility is under the control of the local council. If that is the case, I suggested that they lobby for control to be moved to another Authority which understands the tourist industry. The building is a must visit for many island tours but it leaves such a poor impression of the island's Tourist ministry attitude to tourists.

‪Fantastic Views‬
חברים • מרץ 2019
‪We stopped at this Mirador whilst driving to Betancuria. The views from the viewing point are amazing, you have a full 360 degree panoramic view of the landscape. If you are passing the viewing point, I would definitely make the effort to stop.
There is also a small exhibition of the history of the island, a cafe and craft shop.‬
