The views from the summit of Roque de los Muchachos are spectacular. You can drive there but we went on a coach trip that included going inside the building that houses the GTC telescope, the largest optical telescope in the World, with the specialist guide Sheila. She was very informative and amusing. Possibly the best trip I have ever been...
Thoroughly enjoyed the tour of the telescopes from the guide, Sheila, who made the whole experience very entertaining and provided fantastic facts and insights about astrology and how the telescopes work. The views from the top of Roque de los Muchachos were unbelievable! Definitely worth the long drive up!
A visit to these telescopes is really mind blowing they have shots of the universe that take your breathe away. We were lucky to have had a guided tour by one of the staff and the clinmb (in the car of course) was well worth it.
