Roque Cinchado is a rock formation. It is a pretty famous spot and visited by millions of people every year. Why you should get there? Well, you have to visit it and get there, then let me know what you think.

When we had our currency, "pesetas", Roque Cinchado was an item in 1000 pesetas bills. (Google 1000 pesetas teide)

In this case, I only can say that at daylight is beautiful. But, when suns goes down, the night sky is just awesome, which is rated with class 3-4 in the Bortle's scale, so you will see with naked eyes larges structures and galaxies like M31.

To get there is easy, pretty easy in fact. You only have to go to Parque Nacional del Teide and be here (google maps: 28.225351, -16.631692)

In that spot, you will find a lot of items to take pictures, not only rock formations but flowers and animls (like lizzards).

Travel Information

To reach there yo only need to follow TF 21 road from la Orotava, TF 24 road (From La Laguna) and then get Tf 21, or Tf 38 from Chío and get Tf 21. Or just simply put the coordinates in google maps.

I suggest to spend the whole day exploring the PN Teide, you will find a lot places to visit and take pictures.

In this spot, you will find parking, and a place to take a rest (even a sleep if you have booked previously). Warning: With coronavirus thing, the Parador de Cañadas del Teide might be closed.
