The cliffs and the legendary light-
house await travellers in the last
village of the island.
If there were one scene that re-
flects the end of the Earth, it must
be something like the last stretch
of road leading from El Pilar de la
Mola to the lighthouseandthegid-
dy cliffs that inspired Jules Verne.
A landof artisans, pioneers, people
hardenedbythewindand insular-
ity,thefirsthippieswhocametothe
plateau of La Mola in the late ‘60s
discoveredtheirEdeninthiscorner
of the end of the world. Their leg-
acy can be felt nearly everywhere
on the island, and in particular in
thestreetmarketthatisheldinthis
village onWednesdays and Satur-
days.TherestoredMolíVellwindmill
and the church of Virgen del Pilar
are some additional attractions in
thispeacefulvillage,whereyoucan
find local wine and goat’s cheese.
One unmissable experience is to
contemplate thewhole island from
thevantagepoint that is just before
you reach the village, an indelible
perspective.—
