The constellations, the Moon, the planets, the stars, and, by day, the Sun are the most admired celestial objects by visitors.
Due to its highly advanced, technological instruments, the Astronomical Observatory of the Pistoia Mountains has been able to discover many new asteroids and meteors. It is the home of the GAMP – Gruppo Astrofili Montagna Pistoiese, a group of amateur astronomers.
Visitors can scrutinize the stars thanks to two 5-metre-wide domes, which rotate at 360°, and to two 40 and 60 centimetres wide telescopes.
