Spain’s Star Attraction – Calar Alto

Hi, I’m Sara, founder and writer at Travel Continuum, where I write about my global travel experiences, with a special passion for the stars and sustainability. I believe in the power of education through travel, and here I share the tales and tips that I find interesting and inspiring. I hope that you do too.

Something that keeps going, changing gradually over time…like the seasons.

    Hi, thank you for your article. I have booked a trip to France to a place called Astrofarm, which is kind of an astro b&b run by an English family. You can rent a multitude of scopes or you can bring your own equipment which I will do. I will be staying there a full week in summer, hoping to do some astrophotography. The owner also organizes workshops and helps you out if you’re stuck. It sounds like astro valhalla for me, and if I have a great time I think I might go there once a year :). Just wanted to share this as you might be interested too.

    take care

      Hi Benjamin, thanks for dropping by! I’ve heard of Astrofarm – they featured in a TV show a little while back. They’ve done an amazing job and I’m sure you’ll have a fantastic time. Good luck with the astrophotography and feel free to email me and let me know how you got on.:-)

  2. Sounds like a fascinating place to visit. How much does the ‘Astronomer For One Night’ experience cost?

    • Sara Dobak says:

      It is wonderfully different. The ‘Astronomer For One Night’ is €199 (approx.£150) – very reasonable. It would make an unusual gift 🙂 Basic Observatory visits start at €10!!
