A glass-floored viewpoint in La Gomera
At first glance, the Abrante Viewpoint seems pretty much like any other. However, high up on the ravine in the north of La Gomera where this viewpoint is located, visitors don’t simply overlook the precipice, they “float” over it. A seven-metre overhang with a glass floor lies at the far end of this viewpoint, overlooking a typical rural landscape of the Canary Islands. Seize the courage to walk on it and feel as if you are suspended in mid-air.
A must-see in Agulo with views over towards Tenerife
On clear days, the small valley of Agulo can be seen 400 metres below the viewpoint, with its clusters of houses and agricultural terraces, sandwiched between almost vertical cliffs and facing out to the Atlantic Ocean. In the distance you can see Tenerife. It is worth noting that visitors to the lookout need a vehicle as it is found off the main transport routes. This internationally praised building with its interesting design is well worthy of a visit as part of any car journey around the north of the island.
