  • Nice place to visit, one of the highest glass platforms in the world. It's very safe, although if you have vertigo it might be a struggle. Ample parking with a cafe, toilets (0.50€ entry fee) and a souvenir shop on site. There was turnstile gates before getting to the platform but these were open and free to enter on our visit. Big thank you to our tour guide Jose who brought us here.
  • The view is incredible + when you stay on the glass platform. If you're scared of highs, think you'll not like it. 😅
