  • Is one of those centers strategic of the armed Spanish, together with Cartagena. Not currently operating as the center of the armed forces. It has as main attraction its library, which is an incunabulum (book of the time Isaac Newton, Philosophiae naturalis principia mathematica,) and its Center for seismic motion detection and a clock which is which governs the time in Spain.

  • In San Fernando there are many special and precious. ... Suazo bridge, hunting beach of Camposoto, landscapes of the marshes from Ronda del Estero, Pantheon of amarinos Illustres and without doubt the Navy Observatory!

  • Increible.una visit forces in the city of San Fernando. I think, and little mistake what is the unknown military centers, and not by its location, but by its activity. The time centre in Spain. Directed by professional experts.

  • You can not miss it. Possibly from the most important landmarks in the province. Indispensable for any lover of science. It is necessary to register prior before the visit. Free guided tour that lasts about 3 hours. Preserved, very well maintained, lots of history and instruments after 250 years of uninterrupted scientific activity. An amazing library. A bit of the history of most notably Spain.

  • The private company in charge of the tour requires that you register online don't know where (not found) previously to gain access as a group. No matter from where it come exclusively to visit it, if there are vacancies or if you been waiting an hour (or three conditions together). The only response you'll find is "another day". I find it a huge mistake that is difficult to access to citizenship to the science and technology used in these facilities through useless and unnecessary bureaucracy from a private company. A great way to prosper the motivation of any young person who might be interested in such things. In Wikipedia, they define it as "scientific research and cultural diffusion Center". Yes, "broadcasting".

  • Is a place historical with a great importance even to day of today. Visits are very pleasant and the personnel of the Navy attends with great professionalism. A site that there are to visit necessarily.
