  • The Observatory is a lovely place. Beyond all the nature that lies around the room, the view from the peak is breathtaking ... is a beautiful sunset, or a starry night. Valley super worth it!

  • Is a different ride, to get there is an adventure as soon as you start the dirt road, walk some KM in your most road is well preserved, but there are some passages that should redouble the attention. At the Observatory the day I went, it was a closed walk, we had a wonderful lesson on planets and solar system. Too bad the day heaven was with rain and we didn't make comments, but it was worth it because the class. Therefore, check the weather before you go.
