Astro-tourism. Destination Starlight

Sierra Morena: where sky and earth meet

Thanks to the constant work of the mountain inhabitants who are proud of their homeland, many already know that Sierra Morena is synonymous to wild nature, of remote moorland where the Mediterranean forest is present in all its splendour, white villa

At present Sierra Morena is being studied for a Starlight Reserve and Tourist Destination, certified by the Institute of Astrophysics of the Canary Islands and authorised by the UNESCO, that only approve places where the night sky allows star gazing in the very best conditions with an absence of light pollution.

When the sun goes down and the first stars appear then you are guaranteed a show. A deep, black sky appears in all its grandeur, the stars shine in a clear sky free from light pollution, the abyss of the cosmos tempts us with questions and doubts and Sierra Morena is the ideal place to lose yourself in this sea of curiosity that engulfs us as we contemplate the mysteries of the universe.

At present a network of holiday accommodation has adapted their services for tourists who are interested in astronomy, with observation zones equipped with telescopes, minimised illumination so that you can star gaze in the best conditions, with astronomy guides offering star gazing activities for families, groups of enthusiasts and people who are interested, as well as including a series of amenities that make astronomy something easy to do (Late check outs, hot drinks available at night, electrical sockets, dinner under the stars). In this way Sierra Morena has become a reference point for astro-tourism, where enthusiasts have every commodity for star gazing.

Most of the 57 municipalities in the Sierra Morena have understood the potential of the sky at night and they have got involved in its conservation, a common wealth that is often underestimated.

Sierra Morena invites you to experience the thrill of watching the night sky that appears to explode in colour and light, immerse yourself in questioning and admiring a universe that we have hardly begun to understand. Let yourself be moved by the clear depth of dark skies in Sierra Morena.
