Roque de los Muchachos Observatory



General information

We are working to update the form required for visits to the Observatory, and for the moment they are suspended

When they start again we will inform you on this page

Until then we recommend you to visit the Roque de los Muchachos Visitor Centre, belonging to the Island Cabildo of La Palma, where you will find a great deal of information about the Observatory and its telescopes, as well as other material related to Astronomy and to the Municipality of Garafía.

We hope to resume our programme of visits soon.




Any agencies, producers and media, in general, wishing to film or photograph Observatory facilities, both exterior and interior, should consult the general regulations and access the Online Site.

Once filming has been approved, you will be sent an authorized recording schedule.
