  • In a city surrounded in beautiful panoramic views, this is another one. It is, though, next to a little bit of local scientific history. It isn't a museum you'd go out of your way to visit, but consid...  more »
  • The food there is not much to choose because I do not like fishing or seafood... the veal very good that if and the service too. The room was very clean and comfortable. take a coat. Lots of telescope but the sky just saw a star on the day today... wouldn't repeat, and it's expensive for what it's

  • Breathtaking place, especially when you visit when its dark with clear sky then you can see the whole city of Barcelona. A bit long to get to if you coming from center of Barcelona but a must to experience this view!
  • It is a really nice place and definitely you'll have an amazing panoramic view of Barcelona. The menus are pretty good for the price you pay and you'll have a different visit if you speak English so the conferences are in catalan/spanish. Although, it is quite far away from the city. Book a taxi to go and come back if you do not have a car or let the staff know that you need one, so they'll book it for you. In conclusion, if you are visiting Barcelona book this in advance and enjoy one of the most beautiful panoramic visits from Barcelona and discover the observatorioum while you're enjoying an amazing dinner.
  • We did not go inside and walked along the road on the outside as it was closed but can say that I wish I had planned earlier and made it inside. The place looks amazing and the views are incredible. I was outside when an employee very politely explained that he had to lock the gate near the road so I needed to leave the grounds. I wish I could thank him in person because he was very nice about me parking and taking a look around when I'm sure he could have made me leave earlier as it was empty and the gate was locked so I was in the driveway just enjoying the view from the road leading to the building. Great place and I regret not knowing about this place earlier to be able to enter and enjoy the observatory from inside. I have even read they host a dinner which would be an awesome evening. I hope this review explains this place enough for anyone interested in observation and the sky.
  • Interesting exhibition. Nice view of the city. Not a place to look at stars.
  • I did the night visiting and I got very disappointed. Booked for 7pm, I had to wait outside because the place has no waiting room. The building is small but have a 360 amazing view of Barcelona. The night tour has nothing in special, I short explanation about the observatory and then was decided to watch Mars at the telescope. Every person has a chance to look through the telescope to see Mars. after that there is a long explanation about the place history and the visit ends at a very small museum. Honest speaking better just to go at night take pictures but not join the visiting
