“Amazing precision from such an old observatory.”
Reviewed 23 February 2012

It is all in such good order and "working". A good guide will explain each piece in turn.

“Amazing”
Reviewed 19 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”
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”
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.
