Lookout point within an Artenara cave
This viewpoint is within the popular La Cilla restaurant with its cave terrace looking out on the central highlands of Gran Canaria. The landscapes here, crowned by the iconic Roque Nublo and Bentayga rocks, are part of the Unesco Biosphere Reserve. La Cilla is carved from the rock inside a cliff in Artenara, a town famous for its cave houses. Entry is via a 50 metre tunnel cut into the rock.
Traditional restaurant in the Gran Canaria highlands
The La Cilla dining area is open and cool with wooden and stone features and bright colours. Although you don’t have to eat at the restaurant to enjoy the view we recommend booking one of the 150 seats on the cave terrace in advance: Then you know you’ll be able to try local specialities such as grilled goat kid, Canarian wine and a slice of traditional Artenara almond cake.
