Astronomical Observatory of the University of Valencia


The Astronomical Observatory organises tours of its observation site in Aras de los Olmos. This observation station is in the Alto Turia region, one of the few dark sky reserves left in the Region of Valencia. The tour of the Aras de los Olmos observatory is a unique experience of contemplation and enjoyment of the dark sky, one of the elements of nature that has become increasingly difficult to find. Here you can discover the grandeur of the Milky Way, the brightness of thousands of stars visible to the naked eye, the outlines of constellations and their ties with history and culture.
