Combined Experiences

Enjoy astronomy combined with dinner, active tourism, archaeology or history

At Azimuth we have travelled to every corner of eastern Andalusia to find rural accommodation and hotels from which to enjoy exceptional night skies. These accommodations, not by chance, are located in some of the most beautiful natural settings in Andalusia. With our help they have obtained the Starlight certification. This certifies the good conditions of their night skies and their willingness to improve and preserve their environment promoting activities such as astrotourism which create wealth through culture, the change in the economic model and the sustainable human development.
Enjoying our activities from these accommodations is very easy. Ideally, once you have reserved the dates in which you are going to stay, call us to specify the date on which to request our activities. From the accommodations they will also be happy to help you resolve any questions regarding our services.

Natural Star Viewpoints

Astronomical View Point of Sierra de Castril

In collaboration with the City Council of Castril de la Peña, we have designed and built the Sierra de Castril Astronomical Viewpoint, which, located at the entrance to the natural park, offers ideal conditions free of light pollution for observing and interpreting the night sky. From there, and with the help of its information panels, anyone can learn to locate the Pole Star to orient themselves with it and to identify the Milky Way, which from the skies of Castril offers an impressive appearance.
On the map there are marked, with the symbol located at the beginning of the text, other spaces that can be perfectly used to enjoy the spectacle of the starry sky. We invite you to visit them.
