The construction of the Albanyà Observatory began in April 2017, after months of design and planning.

First phase

The construction of the four-meter fully automated dome is carried out. Next, all the interior equipment, including the telescope, is assembled. To bring this advanced observatory to life, materials and equipment from all over the world have been used, including Germany, Canada, Spain, the United States of America, Italy, Poland, Portugal, the United Kingdom, the Czech Republic, the People's Republic of China, and Sweden.

Some of the filters and components have been built by companies that regularly collaborate with NASA in the design and maintenance of their telescopes, including the Hubble Space Telescope. This first phase of construction of the Albanyà Astronomical Observatory concludes with its inauguration in July 2017.

This second phase was completed in April 2018.

Second phase

Second phase: Heated and smart bleachers with large capacity are constructed so that attendees can enjoy astronomical baptisms at any time of the year. A set of lights is also installed to enhance the presentation of each baptism, with very dim illumination guiding the way to the Albanyà Astronomical Observatory.

All lights, except for those in orange and red colours, are turned off before the start of the astronomical night to protect the night sky.

One of the most interesting novelties is the soundtrack composed by Pep Sala, specially designed to evoke a myriad of sensations during the astronomical show.
