  • Really not imagine everything that is done in this Royal Institute and Observatory of the Navy. Visit also free and recommended Guide explained us swimmingly everything related to the Observatory. EYE, it is not recommended for children, best 14-15 years or older so they understand what they are going to explain on seismographs, observation of the stars, books of navigation, Spanish and global time synchronization, and more. The visit lasts 2 hours, that they pass quickly, and a little more time would be nice. Pay attention to the days and hours of visit to book because they do activities with institutes of secondary school, seminars, etc., which can limit the days and hours of visit. In summer, the San Fernando Tourism Office coordinates list of visitors, is only required to sign up with the ID of every person who will access, remember that it is a military compound, and ID for access should be presented. It is not allowed to enter with the car, next to the main entrance there is a large municipal parking.

  • The official time of the meridian of Greenwich! It is a must-see if you come to San Fernando, a historical place that still marks our hours. Libraries, leave you without words and the ability of those who manage it with so much gossip obsolete, even more!

  • One of the most important observatories of Spain. In its facilities, we can find a powerful laser telescope, a full seismograph equipment and one of the most accurate clocks in the world. For a time the time signals of the country governed by this watch.

  • Picturesque place which is worth visiting. From there it gives time for all Spain and the first steps that mark the time on the radio comes from there.
