The 7 Most Beautiful Views in Spain
Spain at times can be absolutely overwhelming, offering a ton of different landscapes, activities and cities to explore. What makes traveling here that much easier and more rewarding are the incredible views, the ones that make you stand back, take a breath and say “ahhhhhh”, along with snapping about a hundred photos. Some of these views are well known; and therefore crawling with tourists but still 100 % worth it, while others are off the beaten path, but they all have one thing in common- these are the seven most beautiful views in all of Spain.
7. Mirador del Río, Lanzarote
Mirador del Rio is a viewpoint, situated on a 475-meter escarpment called Bateria del Rio and offers one of the most spectacular views in the Canary Islands. Located in the very north of the island, in former times guards watched for secretly landing ships in the strait of Rio. For visitors who come here for the view, they won’t be disappointed. It lends one of the most spectacular views of all of Lanzarote, looking out over the Archipelago Chinijo Natural Reserve, the island of La Graciosa, the oldest salt mines of the island and the Famara Cliff. This architectural creation consists of a café, souvenir shop and two vaulted rooms that give visitors the views. The building is much hidden into the lava rock and is open daily from 10:00am- 6:00pm.
6. Mount Teide, Tenerife
Mount Teide has many claims to fame, including its summit, which is the highest point in Spain and the highest point above sea level in the islands of the Atlantic. It only takes eight minutes to reach the top of this volcano via cable car and during that eight minutes riders will have absolutely spectacular views. Travel from November to March and be treated to snow covered peaks and glistening snow. The top station of the cable car is where you can buy a drink, enjoy the sweeping views and take plenty of photos. If you want to reach the actual summit of this volcano ensure you have obtained a free permit before hand. If you really want to take in the views that this volcano offers, tackle it by foot, a grueling five-hour trek that takes you through some spectacular landscapes.
