La Pedriza Astronomical Observatory

The southern mountain range of Jaén was catalogued as a Starlight Reserve in 2014. This rating indicates that the sky maintains its natural darkness, thanks to the absence of light contamination, thereby guaranteeing excellent astronomical observation. An observatory has been built in La Pedriza village, with first-class facilities for astronomical observation and dissemination. It has a dome, a telescope and a set of instruments and accessories which can be remotely operated from anywhere.
