A viewpoint with a star chart and sun dial

The Sisacumbre viewing point is located in the south of Fuerteventura, in Pájara, and is an excellent place to view the skies. With ample parking and information areas there are also signs to help visitors locate the constellations, a sun dial and a vertical clock. For true astronomy addicts Sicasumbre offers the necessary supports for those of you who have your own telescopes and cameras. Don't forget warm clothes.

Nightime views of three constellations: Virgo, Bootes and Corvus

From the Sicasumbre viewpoint at just 300 metres above sea level, in the early night hours at the beginning of Spring one star is fairly easy to spot - Spica, the main star of the Virgo constellation. Close by you can see the Bootes constellation with Arcturus as its lead star and to the right of Virgo is the small Corvus constellation, characterised by its square or diamond shape.
