The Llano del Jable Astronomical Viewpoint is situated in the municipality of El Paso, at 1341 meters of altitude, from which you can admire an amazing view of Aridane Valley and a breathtaking sunset.

Llano del Jable represents a special place for stargazing, since it often stands above the so-called sea clouds and far away from light pollution, so an extraordinary starry sky can be gazed at from here.

This viewpoint has a signpost pointing to the Pole Star, a planisphere for the main circumpolar constellations recognition and some information boards.
