The Carnival of Canillo takes place over the weekend before Carnival Monday on 27 February.
Enjoy an attraction that’s unique in the Pyrenees.
Enjoy the stunning views over the valley of Canillo. Make your way to the Roc del Quer viewpoint and experience the feeling of being suspended 500 metres up in the air, with spectacular views over the valleys of Montaup and Valira d’Orient, from Soldeu to Encamp.
The viewpoint platform is 20-metres long, 12 meters of which are suspended mid-air. Part of the walkway is made of glass, which really gives you a sense of the drop. The site is topped off with the figure of a thinker sitting on the edge of the beam, looking out over the void, by sculptor Miguel Ángel González. You’ll also find a brief geological description of how Pyrenees mountain range was formed.
Getting there from Canillo couldn’t be easier. You can reach the Roc del Quer viewpoint from Coll d’Ordino by taking the CS340 road 6.5 km east. Here you’ll also find the “Estructures Autogeneradores” [self-generating structures], a set of three wooden totems by Mexican artist Jorge Dubón, installed in 1991. It’s an easy walk that takes 5 minutes. You’ll find two parking areas on site.
See the heights of Andorra for yourself!
You will find more information about this and other guided walking routes in the Andorra Mountain Guide.
