Thursday 26th November and we we driving from Pajara to La Pared and we were very pleasantly surprised to find this unusual Mirador along the way.

We made are way up, the paved pathway and steps, to the Mirador, which took about 10 minutes. Initially the stone pathway is a gentle incline but becomes a sharp slope towards the top. There were small solar lights set into the path, which would be use at night to guide visitors to the top.

On the pathway up to the astronomical view point, there is a small lookout area, with the statue of 2 goats and a stone star set into the ground. From here there are some incredible views across to the Cardon Mountain.

It was extremely windy when we visited and rain was threatening so basically it was a quick up and down. Even though the weather was not that brilliant when we were here, we were treated to some incredible views across the Island.

This is a unique Mirador as its  visitors would normally come here at night, with their telescopes and viewing equipment  to view the sky and all its treasures.

The pathway, its small low walls and other structures have been constructed with an orange/brown stone which compliments the natural landscape.

There are numerous information boards around giving details of where to look and what can be seen.

There were some fittings for viewing equipment in place but the equipment had been removed.

I first visited here a few years ago. while travelling to Morro Jable, on a day trip from Corralejo, we stopped off to view the landscape. it was a clear, sunny day, and the views were fantastic. you get panoramic vistas, up and down the island, and across to the coast, and the sea. the rolling, barren, hillsides are like a lunar landscape, impressive and very beautiful.

on this occasion we were actually staying in Morro Jable, and came at night for the dark skies experience. TOP TIP, if you do this, remember to take a good torch to light your way, it's pitch black. also, when you see the road sign stating it's ahead, slow down. the car park is just after the sign, with no other markings. it's easy to just whizz past, and be on your way down the hill before you realise, we did. then it's tricky to turn around.

once there though, the fun begins. it's incredibly dark, so watch your footing. there are a string of flashing lights that run to the summit, but provide very little light otherwise. here the torch comes into its own. the slopes not too steep, but it's uneven, and littered with all kinds of stones of varying sizes which can make the walk up tricky. once at the top though you'll find it was well worth it.

we were a little unlucky. when we got there, there was a ring of cloud all around us, but the view overhead was spectacular, so many stars. I can only imagine what it's like on a totally clear night. the cloud seemed to close in on us from every direction so we only got about 20 mins of clear sky above, but we all though it worth the trip even for that short time. the stars and the wisp of the milky way are fantastic. here, I can look up and pick out a number of constellations, but not so much there. simply because there were so many stars, many you likely wouldn't notice here due light pollution. I can't stress how beautiful it was.

I'd say it is a must see, weather permitting. it does take a bit of effort, the drive out there, and then the walk up, but definitely worth the effort. absolutely beautiful.

Miles away from civilisation, this place is worth a visit.

A lot of thought & design has gone into this place.
The views are outstanding.

They do say if it's your thing, then go in the dark & enjoy a fantastic view of millions of stars.

On top of that there are the Ravens to chat to.

This Mirador offers good views of the rugged West coast. However, I only went as far as the halfway point, as it was that windy, I could barely stand up. Whilst the views from here were good, I'm sure they would have been better from the very top.

Situated off the mountain road between Pajara and La Pared is a mirador with a difference. The area is part of a black skies region enabling visitors to view the stars free from light pollution. As such, there are numerous aids to help.

However visit in the day and your eyes will be drawn landwards to the fantastic vistas. There a two small parking areas and it's a small trek up to the top but what a view! Unmissable if you have a car to get there.

You can find this on the road between La Pared and Pajara. There are no facilities here, but it is not too far to drive to Pajara afterwards. The are a couple of small parking areas, and then you have a 10 minute walk up to the Mirador. It is not a stepp path, but it is quite rough in places. The view at the top is worth the climb. There is not much vegetation, but there are great views in all directions, especially to,the west.
