Roque de Bentayga Viewpoint

A unique show
The beautiful landscapes of the Tejeda municipality hide several stone giants, including the Roque Bentayga. From a scenic point of view, this place offers us a unique show, which Unamuno defined as “a petrified storm.” The Tejeda canyon, often called the Grand canyon, stuns when seen from a central perspective, from the very heart of the hydrographic basin. This rock is part of the Protected Natural Spaces Network.
Sacred land
There’s a trail to reach the Roque Bentayga lookout. On your walk there, you’ll find an “almogarén”, which means sacred land, a place of worship for the ancient original inhabitants. The almogarén is located on the rock’s eastern face. Children love touching the almogarén because of its fissures. The place is fairly large, and you can sit in a group on tours scheduled with special guides. You can also climb the rock’s unprotected face.

Sustainability
Sostenibilidad
- 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.).
