Guise & Ayose Viewpoint

One of the most popular viewpoints in Fuerteventura, together with Morro Velosa

Just before reaching Betancuria via the FV-30 road, there is the well-known Guise & Ayose viewpoint. Here, there stand two imposing bronze statues that represent the Kings of the island before the invasion and subsequent Castilian conquest of Fuerteventura: Guise and Ayose.

In the past, the island was divided into two kingdoms, Jandía and Maxorata, governed by the aforementioned kings. In this area, there was a large defensive wall that separated the two kingdoms.

The Viewpoint is found just off FV-30, which goes down towards Betancuria, and from which you can get unbeatable views of both the Valle de Betancuria (Betancuria Valley) and the northern half of Fuerteventura. In the distance, you can see the popular town of El Cotillo and the small villages scattered around the north.

It is one of the most popular viewpoints in Fuerteventura, together with Morro Velosa, which is found nearby.

The sculptures measure approximately 4m in height and their creator is the artist Emiliano Hernández.
