“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

It was amazing the technology that existed at the time, and the accuracy with which they were able to derive the things we now take for granted (like telling the time). Absolutely amazing. Well preserved. Definitely worth a visit!

“Observatory”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2012

Ask for a guide to explain the huge abstract constructions. Very interesting. 17th century : People could already predict the solar eclipse, the movements of the planets...and there is a huge clock.

“Excellent for People interested in Science”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2012

Very well preserved and maintained. The audio guide was a bit too chatty for my taste, and seemed more aimed at children - but it still managed to give reasonable explanations of the purpose of most of the instruments.

“Very interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2012

If you are interested in astronomy, science you will be amazed. Unfortunately we were a little in the hurry visiting this but if you will have time it is worth to see. Amazin that people in old ages could measure time and other things with those structures. I advise you to read earlier than entering this fascintaing place. It is very close to City Palace- 1 minute so you can join those 2 attractions.
