  • A different place, it is worth knowing to learn about the study of cosmic rays, a multinational project, the only Observatory of its kind in the world. It is worth and is not charged input.

  • This Observatory is part of a project that involved 18 countries to study cosmic rays, particles originating from other galaxies and coming to Earth, as a rain - not visible. The visit is short but with very good information.
