We went up the mountain and visited the stone wall and the tiny caves and wholes built into the mountain. Finally we went to the museum which was interesting and even free of charge. Last but not least, there are no tourist crowds. Clear recommendation!

The museum was...More
Short but fun climb to the top from the car park with plenty of interesting information boards along the way relating to the indigenous history of the Roque and the geological formation. Roque Bentayga was a lot less busy than Roque Nublo so the peacefulness...More
