A very atmospheric restaurant housed in an old fort with the added bonus of Cesare Manriques and other artists work on display in the upper rooms. We only had a coffee there so cannot comment on the food, but even in the day with few customers it had atmosphere.

Another Manrique extravagance that takes your breath away. I have visited several times over twenty years and each time, the expansive view, extraordinary vision that built it and care for it's upkeep are enthralling.

As we combined driving to Mirador del Rio with visiting, Timanfaya, the Green Caves and Cactus Gardens we didn't feel we'd lost out but I would not have felt it was worth driving from one end of the island to the other just for this view alone.... beautiful as it was. At least as a bonus we got to see... More

From really high up at the northern tip of the island, towards La Graciosa island where you can visit from Ozorla by ferry

Again, the work of the artist, Cesar Manrique, the Mirador del Rio used to be a military bunker high on the cliffs overlooking the tiny island of La Graciosa. Many people used the abandoned site as a rubbish dump. Manrique had the vision to turn the bunker into an amazing viewing platform with a coffee bar and glass fronted terrace... More

Unless you go for the architecture of Manrique, you could better stay outside and walk a few meters to the left. There you have the same stunning view (it is a very nice location after all) for free. 4 euro entrance fee pp. is rather high (if you want to use the binoculars it's 1 euro extra). We were a...

The Mirador del Rio is located high on a cliff face at a height of 482 metres (1580') overlooking the island of Graciosa. The visitor centre admission is €4.50 each and provides views from the 'Cesar Manrique' designed balcony and centre. Because the viewpoint is at a good height, sometimes you are above the cloud level which results in a... More

479m high on the north cape of the island, the Mirador del Rio gives a fantastic view of Graciosa, Montana Clara and Alegranza. A former artillery post, it was originally intended to be developed into a village with lifts to the beach and nests of bungalows high up the mountain face!, This plan was never carried out but it gave...

An incredible view point across to La Graciosa. There are a few lookout points, the most impressive being from up on the roof - if you're brave enough ;) Worth a quick stop to take in the views and just stop and catch your breath.

Stunning location with a lookout tower designed by the inspirational Cesar Manrique - artist and architect. It is blowy but one feels on top of the world, and it certainly blows the cobwebs away. A must to visit
