Vertigo

Vertigo

The "mirador" (viewpoint) at the Restaurant Mirador del Palmerejeo, designed by architect César Manrique, overlooking the steep-sided Valle Gran Rey.

An article in the Sunday Mirror newspaper once said of La Gomera that "Vertigo sufferers need not apply" and they weren't joking! The roads with "dizzying drops into green ravines" provide as much adrenalin entertainment as a roller coaster ride and are definitely not for the faint of heart. There is even a half joke on the island that there are no bad drivers there, because they're all dead (falling off such precarious precipices does not tend to cause only minor injuries).


Fluent in Spanish and having spent 16 years on the island, Pamela Stocks has now been translating, researching and publishing information on customs and events in Tenerife for 25+ years. This takes a considerable amount of time and effort, for which she receives no payment whatsoever. If you find this work useful or interesting, please buy her a coffee. Buy Pamela Stocks a Coffee
