The Observatori Fabra (Fabra Observatory) is an astronomical observatory located in a privileged area of Barcelona, on a buttress of the Tibidabo mountain overlooking the sea and surrounded by forest.
The Observatori Fabra was inaugurated by King Alfonso XIII in 1904. Since then, the observatory has been a landmark of the city of Barcelona and has become one of the monuments that make up the city skyline.
From the Observatori Fabra can be seen wonderful landscapes of Barcelona city, the delta of Llobregat river and part of the region of El Maresme. In the Observatori Fabra is still practiced the same scientific activity for which it was created over 100 years ago: meteorology, seismology and astronomy. Its location, 413 meters high, among the pines and a clear horizon, has allowed him to continue enjoying great interest as meteorological and astronomical source.
