Overview
More
Located 400 metres high, on the Risco de Famara, the Mirador del Río is one of César Manrique's most representative architectural creations as it shows a series of artistic and architectural details and his eagerness to combine art and nature. It is located near the remains of an ancient military base that dates back to the end of the 19th Century. It is camouflaged on the rock in a way in which only a genius of Manrique's magnitude could conceive.

Stunning achievement of architecture. We loved the views - quite amazing. The cafe was reasonably priced too - much to our surprise.

Worth the trek to see the views out to La Graciosa. Not much more than a cafe and the view here though.

The views over La Graciosa are spectacular from the ground floor cafe and even better from the roof viewing deck. We last visited in the 1970's so returning 40 odd years later brought back fond memories of childhood holidays. This is best visited as an...More
