The Aragones Astronomical Centre, from the moment you step inside, offers its visitors the best experience and understanding of our universe. It can accommodate 66 people. Inside, it has an exhibition hall, workshops and two observatories. From the outside, the great hall of the building can be accessed, which sets the stage for our planet in relation to the greater universe.

The conical shape of the structure and the sphere in a central and outlying position captures your complete attention. Continuous blue textile lining makes up part of this tableau. Points of light are added that pass through the fabric and, with their irregular pattern, are reminiscent of the stars that make up our universe. The membrane, tailored in one single piece, is fixed through its upper part to the metallic structure on the lines that follow the arcs of the main structure.
