The Fabra Observatory originated at the end of the 19th century and was the first observatory that the Royal Academy of Arts and Sciences of Barcelona built. During the summer, astronomy lovers are given the opportunity to attend a dinner under the stars.
The evening begins with a dinner of singular dishes on the Observatory’s terrace. After that is a conference that culminates with a walk through the facilities and, of course, the chance to observe the sky from one of the oldest and largest telescopes in Europe, created in 1903.
A recommendation: because of its location in the serra de Collserola, the temperature at the Observatory can be up to 6ºC less than in Barcelona, making it advisable to bring some type of warm clothing.
