The Mirador de Haria was originally built, with the help of Cesar Manrique in 1966, as a resting point for people walking The Malpasso Way. It fell into ruin for many years, but the Ayuntamiento de Haria carried out an extensive renovation in 2021 and it 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.
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, and it is open from 1100 until 1500 every day.
There is very limited parking in the centre itself. You can also walk to the mirador via the Malpasso Way or the town hall runs a micro bus service from outside the library in Haria on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, so you can park in Haria and bus up there.
The views are incredible, and restoration tastefully done – well worth a visit
