MONTAUP PICNIC AREA, CANILLO
Location and contact
At the Montaup picnic area, you can stop for a quick snack or a relaxing lunch that will stay etched in your mind for years to come, as this spot sits at an altitude of 1,921 metres and is surrounded by spectacular mountains! Its exact location is between kilometres 7 and 8 of the CS240 road, just on the roadside.
However, this is just a small, circular, tarmacked area, and does not provide barbecues, unlike other areas in the parish, such as Meritxell or Ransol. But it does offer two tables with benches, for anyone who wants to get out their tablecloth and recharge their batteries with breathtaking views of the Canillo scenery as a backdrop. The site is big enough for several cars to park there safely. It also has a shed with bins for the rubbish you may generate. The Montaup picnic area does not have a water supply.
What’s more, a few kilometres before, on the same road, you can experience one of the most amazing destinations in Andorra: the Roc del Quer viewpoint, a walkway with a glass floor suspended in the air not suitable for anyone with a fear of heights. Do you dare to look down?
Before visiting a picnic site, check its status at the tourist information office of the parish in question.
In case of an incident, call 112.
