Night-time visits to the Fabra Observatory

Built in 1904 and designed by the Modernista architect Josep Domènech i Estapà, the Fabra Observatory enjoys a privileged position on the Collserola mountain range, where visitors can observe the firmament through a powerful telescope.

Friday’s guided tours cover the museum and Modernista hall, offer observations through a telescope and include visitors to the outside of the dome.

Saturday visits are more complete and include, what is more, a screening of a video on astronomy and a glass of cava or fruit juice.
