    The Canary Islands: A Unique Place for Astronomy

    Unique Location

    In the heart of the Atlantic, the Canary Islands offer exceptional astronomical conditions due to their privileged location in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, close to the equator. 

    Mountain Spaces

    Peaks that rise largely above the Earth's atmosphere reduce atmospheric interference, providing a more stable and clearer view of the sky.

    Clear Skies

    Its mild and stable climate, with few clouds and low humidity, creates perfect nights for observation.

    Teide National Park: A Starlight Destination

    The Teide National Park has been distinguished as a Starlight Reserve, an official recognition awarded to places with exceptional night skies, ideal for stargazing.

    As a Starlight Reserve, the Teide National Park is committed to preserving the darkness of the sky and atmospheric clarity, minimising light pollution.

    Cutting-Edge Observatories

    Home to world-renowned observatories such as the Roque de los Muchachos Observatory and the Teide Observatory, which houses the impressive Gregor telescope, one of the most advanced solar telescopes in the world, designed to study solar activity in great detail.
