Alentejo Star Hotel - Observatory

Observatory

Our observatory is our main feature. Our telescope, a GPS and computer-controlled 14”MEADE LX200, allows for direct dark sky observation and thus the observation of billions of stars, constellations and far-distant galaxies.

Next to the observatory, there is an area for amateur astronomers and astrology lovers to set up their own equipment.

Alentejo Star Hotel - Surroundings

Activities

The location of the Alentejo Star Hotel-São Domingos lends itself to all sorts of activities and experiences to do with nature and the great outdoors.

We are in the heart of the Alentejo countryside – think cycling, mountain biking, hiking and off-road trips; we’re right by the Guadiana River and the river beach, great for water sports like kayaking and canoeing; we have a great pool for a quick splash and a lovely garden to laze around in. And last but definitely not least, we have a top of the range telescope in our observatory that allows for direct observation of one of the starriest skies in the world.
