Palmarejo Viewpoint

The best view of the Valle Gran Rey rural park
The impressive ravine of Valle Gran Rey boasts some of the most picturesque views on the west of the island of La Gomera, such as the spectacular bird’s eye view offered by the Palmarejo Viewpoint. From this high vantage point, the visitor has a spectacular view of vertical rock walls, terraced hillsides, palm groves and traditional houses. All of which justify the classification of the valley as a Rural Park and a Unesco Biosphere Reserve.
A César Manrique-designed viewpoint in La Gomera
This lookout point is also known as the César Manrique viewpoint after the famous Canarian architect who designed it. Manrique brought together Canarian and modern elements and camouflaged the building, placing it amongst the surrounding rocks. The gardens display numerous native plants of the valley, such as Canary palm trees, from which the delicious palm syrup (or honey) is obtained. This delicacy is used in traditional dishes offered by the restaurant located inside the viewpoint itself. There is also parking, information boards and a tourist information desk.

- 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.).
