Mirador de Morro Velosa
#1
Morro Velosa is a scenic viewpoint that allows visitors to observe the northern part of the island. Designed by artist and architect César Manrique from Lanzarote, features a snack bar, gardens and a scale model of the whole island. Morro Velosa is located between the protected Betancuria Rural Park and the Valle de Santa Inés - on the Tegú Mountain with a height of 645 meters.

Mirador de Morro Velosa is now closed due to series of maintenance work until further notice. Let's hope it won't take too long.

It seems to close down regularly for various reasons.

It's a shame it's closed on Sundays (when it is open), and that the cafe is no longer open.

Another place where the cafe appears to have closed is the El Cotillo lighthouse (I'm sure Sam will move this to a new topic).  It appears that many cafes in these places are closing.  I heard that the Cabillo are seeking new people to rent and run these cafes as they don't want to employ staff directly.

Last year the Cabildo rented out the concessions for the Las Salinas salt Museum, the Tiscamanita Windmill museum and the Antigua Cheese Museum/Windmill.

Still closed, today. If visitors keep finding places of interest closed during peak season, they will not think highly of the island.

Surely it can't take so long to agree the new contracts and fit out a cafe??

Drove past the Mirador at least 4 times in the last 2 weeks trying to show friends the view and the exhibitions, alas, it’s still closed. What a shame. I’m a fan.

Whereabouts is it closed? Is it at the bottom of the hill or the complex itself? It is a great shame, it is one of the best views of the island.
Used to love their hot chocolate (and cake before they stopped that? Prices were very good for a 'tourist trap'.

A few days ago I drove past it and the bar was across the entrance at the bottom of the hill.

That’s a valid question. I only saw the closed gate at the “bottom” of the hill. Never walked up past the gates to the Mirador. I made an assumption that it was completely closed. Where would people park otherwise... And I agree, the views are awesome out of the glass windows. How’s that for a living room view...
