Placed in a back road in the center of Padova it is towering the canal nearby and the place remembers some Paris landscapes of the Sein river. The surrounding itself is a gorgeous place to walk and discover old palaces, ancient houses and little churches dating back the 17th century. The tour of the Observatory is absolutely interesting and gives a glimpse of what was the astronomy science 400 years ago, The building has been also used as a jail and you will not be happy to hear how death penalty was administrated in the old times. It has NOT been used as the place where Galileo Galilei started to watch the stars with his first telescope. Actually the first attempts were made by the the great scientist from the window of his bed room in via Galileo Galilei where you can visit his house. Anyway the Observatory is absolutely worth a visit when in the area.
