Casa Astro La Palma, the inevitable astronomy spot for astronomers and all curious people about the stars
Astrotourism on the island of La Palma (Canary Islands) : How to associate the passion for astronomy and the tourism discovery in a preserved natural setting?
It is on the heights of Las Tricias – northwest coast of the island and on the road joining to The observatory Roque de Los Muchachos – at 950m altitude (to observe the sky it’s better to be closer!) that Sylvie and Fabrice welcome you in their vast property and offer a charming apartment with individual access.
A bed and breakfast in the spirit, to come and recharge your batteries away from the hustle and bustle of the world urban centers.
A friendly and warm welcome is accompanied in your discovery of La Palma.

“This is a timelapse showing a night at the 10.4m Gran Telescopio CANARIAS (or Grantecan, or GTC) and the wonders of the Northern Sky from the Observatorio del Roque de los Muchachos in the Island of La Palma (Canary Islands).
Between April 21 and April 24 2015 the Lyrids meteor shower was amazingly visible from the Observatorio del Roque de los Muchachos. I have made a timelapse of the event as seen from different locations
