  • This Observatory is one of the few to be on the equator. It offers observation and explanation of the stars and constellations sessions some evenings of the week

  • Made the visit to the Observatory, I feel sadness for the current state and poor care of the site's staff. Not consistent with the care and warmth of the people of villavieja.

  • The desert views over there are beautiful! There are two different deserts, a red one and a Grey one. Be sure to visit both! The formations of the decomposing sandstone are impressive. I recommend to start to hike early or after 4pm because it gets very hot early
  • Serene desert great for exploring, stargazing, and simply enjoying it's beauty. Photographers will love it here.
  • Feels like out of the world. The maze provides a nice walk. Should be very nice for nocturnal views too.
  • Not much known. But here is a real desert, and friendly (& cheap) guides will guide you through
  • Very good scenery
