Morro Velosa Viewpoint

Stunning views of Fuerteventura's interior
This viewpoint is a must for those who want to discover a different side of Fuerteventura to the tourist centres. The interior of the island, a Unesco Biosphere Reserve, will amaze visitors with its rugged landscapes, completely devoid of tourist areas or sand dunes. An almost endless succession of rounded hills unfolds in front of visitors’ eyes, coloured in ochre tones and, between them, winding canyons with little towns and villages in their depths. It is an amazing landscape that evokes serenity and spaciousness.
A viewpoint designed by César Manrique
Morro Velosa is the perfect place to enjoy this landscape of barren beauty and also for recreation in the lookout building, designed by the famous and prolific local artist César Manrique. This elegant house with a wooden porch and tiled roof is clothed in the colours of the landscape that surrounds it. Inside, visitors can learn about the geological past of this volcanic island, see an excellent model of the island and stop for coffee; ideal if you’re en-route to the ancient capital of the island, Betancuria.

- Never leave waste of any type lying around, including cigarette butts. Leftover food leads to a proliferation of rats and wild cats, which pose a serious threat to the fauna.
- Respect the animals. Do not bother them or feed them. If you see an injured specimen, you can call the emergency number: 112. Do not pick flowers or plants.
- Do not pick up or take away stones or any other item from the natural environment. And do not move them to pile them up into sadly famous 'towers'.
- Respect and look after the different items of public furniture (information panels, railings, seats, lighting, binoculars and telescopes, etc.).
- Respect the signposting along trails. Leaving the set paths and spaces causes damage to the environment and could also be dangerous for you and anyone with you.
- Try not to alter the peace of the environment with excessive noise (loud music, yelling, etc.).
