The Tristaina viewpoint, a spherical suspension platform with a diameter of 25 metres, is a superb observation spot overlooking the lakes of the same name and the Ordino Valley. It couldn’t be easier to enjoy the views to be enjoyed at this superb location, you just need to take the Tristaina cable car and the Creussans chair lift, which drop you off just a few metres from the viewpoint.
The viewpoint also works as a sundial, with the central mast, 27 metres tall, at a 42.55º angle, marking the time.
The name “solar viewpoint” also refers to the natural phenomenon that can only be seen once a year at Pic d’Arcalís. On 7 August, at 7:37 a.m., the sun will be visible for 3 minutes through a large hole between the rocks This extraordinary event is also why the mountain is also known as the Solar Mountain.
