About us

Azimuth has been born from the merger of Astroturista and Ciencialia, two successful pioneering Granada companies in providing touristic stargazing activities and promoting science education in eastern Andalusia.

We provide our customers with quality astronomy tourism and educational activities which while keeping scientific precision bringing science closer to society and make it attractive and accessible to all ages and social conditions.

We are specialised in astronomy and work from a natural environment with the privileged sky of the southeast peninsula .Here is one of the highest concentrations of professional astronomy infrastructures in Europe, which touristic potential Azimuth is helping to promote and manage its development.
