Information of Baroness Lookout

The Baroness Lookout is a tuff basalt formation between Cormorant Point and Post Office Bay in La Olla Bay.

Named after the eccentric Austrian baroness named Eloise Wagner-Bosquet who arrived to Floreana in the mid 30s and mysteriously disappeared with one of her three lovers. One day, the Wittmer Eloise said she was thinking of leaving the island and travel to Tahiti with his favorite mistress, Philipson. But no one ever saw them leave the island. Today, there are speculations about his disappearance but the truth has been discovered.

Letters is known that the Baroness Eloisa Vo Wagner liked this place, where he spent several hours and where he could have knowledge of vessels approaching the island. Auna walking distance (30 m) is the ruins of what is known as the House of the Baroness.

From the viewpoint, the landscape includes the coastline from the Enderby island to Post Office Bay, as well as Cerro Straw, the pool of flamingos (Punta Cormorant), upper and an extensive forest of palo santo.

The Baroness Lookout is a good place for interpretation of the mangroves. The red mangrove is characterized by a long outstanding result, which actually is a new daughter plant that grows from the parent plant, a rarity in the plant kingdom. The red mangrove is a pioneer in the coasts and has a very hard and durable wood.

Other plants that can be found on the veranda are leucophlyctis Cordia, Lantana peduncularis, Plumbago scandens, etc.
