Location

The transparency of the sky, the quality of the air and a strategic geographical situation close to the Tropic of Cancer make Tenerife one of the most suitable places in the world for astronomical observation.

This is witnessed by tourists who love astronomy, as well as expert scientists, who have found in the summits of Tenerife the ideal enclave to admire the celestial vault.

For something it will be that in the Teide National Park there is the Observatory and the Institute of Astrophysics of the Canary Islands, which has the collaboration of 19 countries and is equipped with the latest technologies for the optimal study of the sky.

The observatories are located at 2,400 meters above sea level, where the unique sea of clouds generates a natural layer that protects them from light pollution of the coast and the atmosphere is clean and calm, so that you can enjoy a high number of useful observation hours.

There is the possibility of visits to the Teide observatory prior reservation at the Astrophysical Institute of the Canary Islands.

A very small number of days a year, the Institute opens its doors to the public and allows you to visit some of its telescopes.
