Description:
An orientation table is a small tourism oriented construction, located at an observation point, which enables visitors to identify the characteristic elements of the view from that location. There are several kinds, from the simplest to the true artistic creation. Orientation tables can be found in a variety of locations, but because their main goal is to identify the features of a landscape, they are generally located at points which are higher than the surrounding countryside.
