     If you want to enjoy a unique experience with that special someone, no doubt this package is right for you: A romantic weekend under the stars in the heart of the province of Cordoba, near to the fascinating town of Montoro. Stroll through the streets, admire the beauty of its landmarks and townhouses, and lose yourself in the sights and smells of the Guadalquivir River as it famously meanders around this proud, ocher and white coloured town.

     But the icing on the cake comes at dusk when the sun sets and a blanket of stars opens up above. The Milky Way across the sky from horizon to horizon and a myriad of stars provide a show that will make you feel privileged.

     A specialized astronomical monitor is on hand to help you during the star gazing session. You and your partner will be shown how to use high-quality telescopes. In this private and exclusive show, you will get the chance to see dozens of objects deep in the night sky such as star clusters, galaxies, nebulae and planets.

      Finally, we will have a souvenir photo shoot so you can have a wonderful memento of an extra special evening. The best and most original gift you could imagine!!

A Starlight Reserve is an international certification which is granted only to those places where the night sky remains in impeccable conditions of conservation in terms of darkness. If a given area is certified as a Starlight Reserve, this can be taken as a guarantee of quality, as it means that there is little light pollution, that at least 60% of nights are clear and that the darkness of the night sky is similar to or better than the skies above many professional observatories worldwide. 
           In 2014, Sierra Morena was certified as both a Starlight Reserve and a Starlight Tourist Destination and is currently the largest Starlight Reserve on the planet as it is over 400 km long and contains more than 57 towns and villages. 
Sierra Morena awaits you with its clear dark skies, and here at AstroÁndalus we can prepare the best experiences for you to enjoy this special place.
