Two giant statues of the ancient kings of the island guarding the highest point of the road. The statues are interesting, but the views are absolutely amazing. A 'must stop' place en route from Corralejo to Betancuria.

These statues will amaze anyone. They are tall and Roman like. The Guanche kings Guize and Ayose have a history in Fuertaventura.

They are lovely statues and there's a great view from there too. Bring your binoculars! Be careful if it's a particularly windy day as you'll lose your hat or glasses!

Nestling in the mountains near to the old capital of Betancuria is this fantastic photo opportunity. It's got a fab view and the statues are cool. No food or drink here so bring your own if you plan to stop a while.

After travelling around the area you cannot drive passed these two beauties. Standing very tall with impressive torsos, are Guise and Ayose - apparently re-christened as Luis and Alfonso. There is a small car park next to the statues and areas to sit.

When driving its a great spot for a stop to stretch the legs, have a look at some great views and read up a little on the history
