Night photography of the telescope domes of the Park Astronomic del Montsec

looking up in the sky and open doors

Tens of thousands of stones holed in the middle would channel water to this Romanesque monastery for centuries. Hand painted tiles decorate the refractory. A dinner of astronomical events ends with a super-nova for dessert. Hinting to a visit to the Park Astronomic del Montsec not far away as dusk sets over the hills of el Montsec. An eye opener event that brings the beholder closer to the stars, and brings science to the grasp of every one.

Open doors of science, and open doors of mysticism. And the mountain. And the Pyrenees in the background.
