Evening meal with stars

Science under the stars. A classic summer evening which combines gastronomy and popular science at the Fabra Observatory

Until the end of September, the 10th edition of Dinners at the Fabra Observatory will be held. A unique proposal that combines culinary with scientific activity and which is part of the Royal Academy of Sciences and Arts of Barcelona (RACAB) science program.

The Dinners at the Fabra Observatory are one of the unmissable events in Barcelona’s summer season. The activity takes place at the Fabra Observatory during summer months and combines scientific outreach, astronomical observation and a suggestive gastronomic offer. Both the Observatory and the dinners are located at one of the privileged viewpoints of the city of Barcelona.

The evening starts with the dinner, an original and delicious gastronomic offer of astronomical inspiration, based on quality ingredients and the finest cuisine, served at dusk on the terrace. At the end of the dinner and the activity, a science talk will be offered.

The night invites to visit the interior of the Observatory. The visit includes the museum, the noucentista hall (early 20th century) and the meridian telescope. You will enter the great dome, which preserves its original elements. You will be able to observe celestial bodies in far away constellations, stars and most part of the Solar System through the 1904 telescope, one of the largest and oldest telescopes still in use in Europe.
