What is Roque Nublo

Roque Nublo (Clouded Rock, Rock in the Clouds) is a volcanic rock on the island of Gran Canaria, Canary Islands, Spain. It is 67 m (220 ft) tall, and its top is 1,813 m (5,948 ft) above sea level.[1] It is the third altitude of the island of Gran Canaria, after the Morro de la Agujereada with 1,956 meters,[2] and the Pico de las Nieves with 1,949 meters.

It was formed by a volcanic eruption around 4.5 million years ago.[citation needed]

Location of Roque Nublo

It is located within the Nublo Rural Park [es], a 263,074 km2 (101,573 sq mi) rural park in the municipality Tejeda, in the geographical centre of Gran Canaria. Next to the rock are other unique rock formations, such as the so-called Roque del Fraile and La Rana .

Roque Nublo’s brother, Pico de las Nieves is the second highest peak on the island of Gran Canaria, Canary Islands, Spain. Its height is 1,949 metres (6,394 ft) above sea level. It is of volcanic origin (stratovolcano). On its slopes, Canary Islands Pine was reintroduced in the 1950s.[citation needed]

Traditionally, Pico de las Nieves has been considered the highest peak on the island of Gran Canaria; however, this is uncertain since Morro de la Agujereada stands at 1,956 metres (6,417 ft), which would make it higher than Pico de las Nieves.[2] The two mountains stand next to each other.

Gran Canaria has the highest elevation of the province of Las Palmas and the third highest in the Canary Islands. Of the other Canary Islands, only Tenerife and La Palma have higher peaks.
