Montaña de La Breña Viewpoint

Admire Breña Baja from a volcanic cone
The Montaña de la Breña is an ancient volcanic cone that stands at 565 metres in the east of La Palma. You can find the Mirador de la Breña at the summit – an ideal place to contemplate the Valle de las Breñas and part of the town of Mazo. If the weather is clement and the sky is clear, you can even make out the peak of Mount Teide and the island of La Gomera with its famous cliffs. The viewpoint is crowned by the Cruz del Milenio sculpture.
A perfect spot for families
The Montaña de Breña is an open-air space perfect for a family day out. There are picnic benches, stone ovens and a recreational area – everything you need to enjoy a meal surrounded by nature. There is also plenty of flora to discover, including laurel, heather, acebiños (small-leaved holly) and granadillos (Canary Islands St John’s Wort).

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.).
