Un immense MERCI à Flavia et à Stéphane pour leur extraordinaire accueil, des precisions et accompagnement avant visite aux boissons chaudes de fin de soirée qui font un bien fou. Votre générosité, votre passion pour les mondes des étoiles et toutes les anecdotes qui font clin d’œil nous ont fait passer en famille un moment magique sous la voûte céleste de ce site superbe entre Malaga et Grenade que je recommande à tous les curieux, ou trop proche des villes… vous pouvez y aller les yeux grands ouverts pour une formidable expérience. Le bonjour de la région lyonnaise et continuer de nous émerveiller à travers vos paroles et ces télescopes!! À bientôt, Michael.

Sitio estupendo para ver las estrellas y aprender, la pareja que lo lleva es fantástica y te explica todo estupendamente. Vimos Saturno y la nebulosa de Orión y más cosas y volveremos en verano para seguir viendo más cosas. Muy recomendable

Sorprendente !!! Que Stephan y Flavia hayan traído a nuestra comarca una genial instalación para tener la oportunidad de observar y aprender aspectos del Universo. Son muy acogedores, y transmiten su conocimiento de una forma asequible para todo tipo de público. El telescopio es impresionante y se observan los detalles de los planetas, estrellas, galaxias, etc. Antonio Álvarez y Amparo Castro.

Wow, wow, wow… Esto no fue solo una visita a un Centro Astronómico, sino una experiencia personal, humana, llena de pasión, amor y entusiasmo. Stephan y Flavia, los fundadores y creadores del centro SON unas personas MARAVILLOSAS y entusiasmadas por el tema que saben muchísimo. Además, nosotros fuimos con nuestros hijos (y pensábamos que quizás se aburrirían) pero descubrimos que Flavia y Stephan tienen la capacidad de adaptarse super bien a quien le habla, ya sea explicar el Big Bang a mi hijo Pau (que después de la experiencia dijo que quería ser astrónomo, y Stephan casi lo adopta 😉 o hablar de temas mucho más complejos si se lo preguntas. ¿Lo mejor para mi? La sensación de estar junto a familia, (ya que ellos son una encantadora pareja) Tuve la sensación de estar visitando a unos tíos lejanos que nos mostraban “sus juguetes astronómicos” para que todos, grandes y pequeños, pudiéramos descubrir el cosmos juntos! Una experiencia única, fuera de lo turístico y masificado. Una experiencia mágica de la que nos acordaremos toda la vida. Gracias de todo corazón estimados Stephan y Flavia

What is astrotourism?

It is a different way of doing tourism ; an option to enjoy nature, and at the same time the mysterious magic of the night.

There is nothing more immense than the universe. That is why astronomy is a science with great possibilities and ways to enjoy it. In this sense, we find a multitude of options both for people who are passionate about this science, and who already have some experience, as well as those who are looking for start in astronomy for pleasure and curiosity about the sky around us.

This is where the role of astrotourism comes into play, bringing people of all ages closer to fascinating activities to learn about the mysteries of the universe and observe them from our small and amazing planet.

The sky changes every hour, and also significantly every season or depending on the phases of the moon. For this reason, this type of tourism never offers two equal experiences, and this is one of its great attractions.

Every time you enjoy an astronomy activity, you will see that the experience has been totally different from the previous one. And surely you will be impatient to feel the emotion of observing the night sky again at a different time.

Given the growing interest in enjoying this tourism , there are more and more activities and experiences to discover astronomical events that can only be observed from certain areas of the planet.

The companies that offer this type of activity take advantage of spaces and populations with little light pollution. Since these are the areas, they are the most suitable for making available to tourists all kinds of professional optical instruments for viewing the night sky.

Where can you practice astrotourism?

In order to enjoy all the emotions and knowledge that practicing astronomy gives us, it is important to travel to those places that allow us to contemplate the cosmos in all its splendor.

This search for adventures and new experiences is one of the motivations that move tourists to want to observe the sky from different places. Since as we said, there is no night like another. Finding a good place to offer astronomy activities is not exactly easy. It is true that there are many areas without light pollution where the night sky looks spectacular, but this is not the only thing to look for.

At Sky Andaluz we carefully study the location of our observatory. We had set out to find the perfect place to put our own large telescope, where the weather would not be an impediment.

After assessing the option of settling in Andalusia or in the south of Greece, we decided that Granada would be the perfect place to share our great passion and bring the night sky closer to families, couples, groups of friends or self-taught enthusiasts at the idea of contemplating the wonders that the universe hides.

The enclave of Alhama , where we are, is a place with extraordinary conditions to enjoy an unforgettable experience. We are surrounded by an incomparable landscape beauty, far from the big cities and their lights, and also from the pollution of large industries. This allows the environment to enjoy clean and bright skies.

Another of the attractions of our location to practice this tourism is its lofty geographical location, where the clouds disappear so that there is no obstacle in our astronomical observations.

For all those who plan their trips in search of new experiences, this location has the great advantage of being close to other idyllic places to contemplate the night sky , such as those found in the neighboring mountains of Jaén.
