A window to the universe in the south of La Palma
The viewpoint of the San Antonio Volcano is located in the south of La Palma, in the area known as Cumbre Vieja in Fuencaliente. While during the daytime this viewpoint offers spectacular views of the crater and slopes of the volcano, at nighttime it becomes a window to the universe. The astronomy viewpoint of the San Antonio Volcano is further south than the clearest point for stargazing.
A viewpoint designed to find about the movement of the sun
The design and location of this viewpoint allows us to know more about the movement and the setting of the sun as it goes down with the help of some markers which show the changes of the seasons. It also has a signpost which points towards Polaris and a planisphere to help locate the constellations of the Great Bear and Cassiopeia. Situated at an altitude of 633 metres above sea level, the astronomy viewpoint of San Antonio has a visitor centre.
