You will find a button at the top of our website named "Buy Experience," which will take you directly to the purchase page.

Our experiences are offered in up to three languages: Catalan, Spanish, and English.

From the Observatori Astronòmic d'Albanyà, we offer up to three different types of workshops: "The observatory comes home!", "Your company at the observatory!", and "Formation workshops".

At the Albanyà Astronomical Observatory, we host an outdoor spectacle; therefore, in the event of rain, it will be necessary to cancel it. In such cases, rescheduling for another available date on our calendar will be allowed, but no refunds will be issued. If rain is anticipated, we will contact you on the afternoon of the observation day to inform you about the cancellation.

At the Albanyà Astronomical Observatory, we observe the sky practically every day, so we are fortunate to have numerous archival images that accurately emulate what we would see through the telescope. What we may not be able to see live, we will replace with an archival image. However, to provide a more complete experience, we will aim to cover topics that we don't address on clear sky days, so when you return, you'll witness two different spectacles. Nonetheless, we understand that some of you prefer the visibility of a completely clear and dark sky. In this case, we always offer the option to reschedule tickets before accessing the premises.
