Roque de los Muchachos

Roque de los Muchachos

This is the highest point of the island (2.426 metres)

This is where the Astrophysical Observatory of Roque de Los Muchachos (ORM), located at an altitude of 2,420 metres in the municipality of Garafía, is one of the most complete telescope arrays in the world. Thanks to its dark, clear skies almost all year round, La Palma has become one of the most privileged locations on the planet for astronomical observation.

But the area is more than that. Its inexplicable beauty reaches a crescendo when the codeso and broom flower, covering the hillside with a spectacular display of white and yellow.
