Extremadura Buenas Noches (logo)

Extremadura is a unique stargazing destination. An incredible place to live, explore and indulge your senses, where nothing stops when the sun goes down.
When the night falls, Extremadura wakes up.

EXTREMADURA, BUENAS NOCHES

When the night falls, Extremadura wakes up. And that’s when our senses are heightened, emotions start to flow, as we connect with our environment, rediscovering the aromas and sounds, feeling the night.

A skyscape very few places on the planet can offer, starry nights with the lowest levels of light pollution in Europe and a fantastic weather almost all year round, Extremadura is a paradise for astronomy enthusiasts and all those who wish to explore the wonders of the universe.

The recognition of Europe’s Stars4All and the Starlight certification ensure the excellent conditions of our night skies and vouch for the region as a perfect stargazing destination.

Extremadura’s nights take you on a journey of unique sensations across a land of contrasts where nature, history, culture, gastronomy, modernity and tradition come together to add a magical touch to the place where you can just let yourself be entranced by the star-studded sky.

VIEWPOINTS THAT DEPICT THE STARS

In addition to its numerous points of interest, Extremadura has a unique network of Celestial Viewpoints that are located in exceptional natural settings to offer a memorable stargazing experience.
