Forcarei Astronomical Observatory

Located in As Casetas on a 10,000 m2 plot of land far from the city centre. The main telescope is housed in a circular building with a diameter of 8 metres and a 5-metre dome. The telescope is used for research and outreach activities. The high-quality telescope is of American manufacture. The project was made possible thanks to the financial support of the Forcarei Town Council, the Pontevedra Provincial Council, the European Union through the LEADER+MONTES programme and the now defunct Caixanova.
