The Mirador de Haria was originally built, with the help of Cesar Manrique in 1966, as a resting point for people walking The Malpaso Way. It fell into ruin for many years, but the Ayuntamiento de Haria carried out an extensive renovation in 2021 and the Mirador de Malpaso has now re-opened to visitors.
As well as restoring the gardens and building, two stunning walkways, with glass floors have been built leading from it, one with a view of the valley of Haria, and the other with a view down to Tabayesco and Arrieta beach. Hence the name Mirador de Haria.
The main room currently has an exhibition of prints showing how the restoration was done, but will be used for other types of art exhibition in the future.
Entry is free, it is open 09:00-17:00 from Tuesday to Saturday (updated hours 28 July 2023).
There is very limited parking in the Mirador de Haria itself. You can walk to the mirador via the Malpaso Way footpath up the switchbacks. The town hall runs a micro bus service from outside the library in Haria on Fridays & Saturdays, so you can park in Haria and bus up there.
The views are incredible, and restoration tastefully done – well worth a visit
