Gran Canaria, a Starlight Destination

The wonderful sky of the island is ideal for the contemplation of the stars.

Unesco has declared Gran Canaria as a Starlight Destination, a privileged place for observing the starry sky in which to unveil the enigmas of the Universe.

In addition to the quality of its sky, the aboriginal past of the island was always linked to the observation of the stars, which gives more value to the activities that can be carried out on the island. One of these activities is the visit to the "starlight archaeological sites" that show how the Canarian aborigines took advantage of this resource for their daily life and the search for answers to their religious concerns.

we share this video that shows the wonders of Gran Canaria as "Window to the Sky":
