VISIT

Astronomical baptisms are a unique experience; by the hand of astronomers Pere Guerra and Pau Bosch, attendees will take a sensory journey through space and time with the music of Pep Sala in the background, to learn the secrets of this pure sky, the only one international dark sky park in Spain recognized by the International Dark-Sky Association.

It is an introduction to astronomy with live images from the Albanyà telescope (the largest in the province of Girona) and accompanying explanations to give listeners a first dive into this wonderful world.
