  • The history of the observatory starts from placa Catalya from where you could observe them. Later with lighting, this structure was created. It could be much more interactive and formative.

  • The visit has been spectacular as soon as you enter a pike and a glass of cava with incredible views. An astronomer has explained super well the history of the site and the scientific function that still unfolds there. Then we went to look through the telescopic and were lucky enough to see the great Orion Nebula later we have been given a guided tour of the different halls and a museum while explaining the history of the building. The only drawback is the bad organization at the time of entry. They do not open the doors of the parking until it is not the time and the cars are accumulating on the road and it is very badly indicated besides that the concierge has been very edge and quite rude when addressing all of us.

  • We did not go inside and walked along the road on the outside as it was closed but can say that I wish I had planned earlier and made it inside. The place looks amazing and the views are incredible. I was outside when an employee very politely explained that he had to lock the gate near the road so I needed to leave the grounds. I wish I could thank him in person because he was very nice about me parking and taking a look around when I'm sure he could have made me leave earlier as it was empty and the gate was locked so I was in the driveway just enjoying the view from the road leading to the building. Great place and I regret not knowing about this place earlier to be able to enter and enjoy the observatory from inside. I have even read they host a dinner which would be an awesome evening. I hope this review explains this place enough for anyone interested in observation and the sky.
  • I did the night visiting and I got very disappointed. Booked for 7pm, I had to wait outside because the place has no waiting room. The building is small but have a 360 amazing view of Barcelona. The night tour has nothing in special, I short explanation about the observatory and then was decided to watch Mars at the telescope. Every person has a chance to look through the telescope to see Mars. after that there is a long explanation about the place history and the visit ends at a very small museum. Honest speaking better just to go at night take pictures but not join the visiting
