The Starlight Foundation accredits Tambor del Llano with the distinction of “Starlight Hostel” and officially incorporates us into the Starligth accommodation network since June 2015.
The activity will begin shortly before twilight with an introductory session inside the building and another for observing the sky with the naked eye, with binoculars and through a telescope. A short walk takes us to the highest area, to the ruins of an old building, an especially appropriate place for observing the sky and the stars.
