In the arms of Cedro
In 1856 astronomer Charles P. Smyth stayed at the top of the mountain for some months to study astronomy and meteorology. In the 20th century, Jean Mascart climbed to the same place to study Halleys’ comet and was so impressed by the weather conditions he proposed building an international observatory at Guajara. At 2,718 meters high, Guajara or the Guajara Mountain is the point in witch the amphitheatre of Las Cañadas del Teide in Tenerife was constructed. It is the third highest mountain in the Canary Islands, apart from Teide and the Pico Viejo, situated in the same National Park.
