Astronomy tourism as an option for the eco tourist
Since the beginning of our history, man has observed the night sky in search of answers. With the development of cities and the current lifestyle, the stars have been left in the background to accommodate the dazzling urban life. But, if you are one of those who prefer to enjoy the night counting stars, you are not alone. We have the perfect plan for you. Hidden in the middle of nature, far from the hurry and light pollution, there are ideal places for the study of the sky.
Astroturism gathers telescope enthusiasts in these privileged places, scattered throughout our country, where heaven and earth come together to form this unique experience. The tranquility of the natural environment invites you to contemplate the celestial vault without the inconveniences of modern life. These observation points offer an overview of the natural environment in which they are located, with their reliefs and valleys, forests or mountains where you can see the most spectacular species of our flora and fauna.
After a walk through these routes, you just have to install your observation post and wait for the nightfall. Remember to bring something warm! Maybe other astronomy enthusiasts like you have reached the same point, it will be the perfect opportunity to share knowledge and experiences and, who knows, win new friendships.
In the darkness of the night, you will learn more about stars and constellations, and you will discover the legends that hide their names and forms. You will know which bodies are visible according to the season, or which can be seen throughout the year from those remote places. You will see the most impressive astronomical shows in the first row, and you will discover new ways of understanding the sky.
