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.
Starlight Reserve certification is endorsed by the Canary Islands Institute of
Astrophysics , UNESCO and the World Tourism Organization.
In 2014, the Sierra Sur de Jaén, with its 10 towns and villages, was certified
as the first Starlight Reserve and Tourist Destination in Andalusia. In
addition, the Sierra Sur de Jaén has the Andalusian Astronomy Observatory,
which houses the largest astronomical telescope for informative use in
