The Pico Cho Marcial

The Pico Cho Marcial



The Pico Cho Marcial is the highest peak of the Güímar Valley at an altitude of around 2,000 meters. At first, one might think of a comparison of this formation with a catch, but as you approach, you can see that it actually looks more like a crest with different peaks.

These lead to a natural spectacle called "The Dance of the Sun" or "The Wave of the Sun", in which the illusion is created that the sun disappears and reappears. This spectacle of nature can be seen in different places in the valley on the days of the solstice, when the summits of this formation cover the sun for a moment and the sun finally reappears.
