We were attracted by the possibility of the view and were satisfied with the beauty of the island from up here' ! The cleaning outside should be improved. Cute
Nice and peaceful. Beautiful views from top and while driving. Anyone scared of heights may cringe during the drive, but safe. 300 year old beautiful chapel on top brings out serene and calmness vibe. Great place to take pics
This is probably the best views that you can find of the whole island. Great view from the airport all the way around to the caldera and beyond. The drive up is in reasonable roads. Parking was plentiful when we were there mid-morning.
