In this night activity we will look up to the sky to see its stars and constellations…and to learn about them from a unique space: the prehistoric “taula” sanctuary of Torralba.
From this monument which is unique in the world, you will discover the amazing world of Astronomy, learn and identify the main constellations that can be seen nowadays in summertime in the Northern Hemisphere. And we will also explain you the Ancient myths that gave the name to all these constellations. Also, you will discover how prehistoric communities perceived the sky more than 2,500 years ago and which constellations they could see in that period in a place like Torralba…An activity that combines two passionate worlds: Astronomy and archaeology, addressed to all publics. Don’t miss it out!!
Note: this activity is led by the two archaeologists in charge of the management and the archaeological research at Torralba, who are also accredited astronomical guides by Starlight Foundation.
Duration: 1,5 hours Language: Spanish. Note: if you are a group of a minimum of 10 people, we can also do it in English.
