Fantastic viewpoint for Arcos. The place is surrounded by a castle, a cathedral and the Parador. Great to visit both during the day and at night.

The views from the mirador are great. You can see for miles across the valley. The birds were quiet in the afternoon. Make a donation and feel free to take a few pictures.

We parked here one Sunday having braved the very narrow streets on the way up the hill. A very lovely man found a tiny little space for our tiny little car. A voluntary contribution is appreciated. At other times (apart from siesta) the parking is...More

This is a terrific spot but tourists should park at the car park below. Narrow streets both in and out and parking in the plaza is a mess. But definitely go see it--amazing views and my wife got photos with wild birds (hawk and falcon).
