Cerro Chamán Observatory
The Cerro Chamán Observatory sits atop Cerro Chamán at Viña Santa Cruz, at 256 meters above sea level. This location has excellent atmospheric conditions, with low humidity and an absence of artificial light, which allows visitors to see objects with great precision and clarity.
To arrive at the summit, we have a cableway to take up to 8 persons, who will also be able to visit the “Indigenous Villages” recreated there, with replicas of homes of the principal original cultures of our country.

Astronomical Tour: 18:30 pm.
Solar Astronomical Tour: 16:00 pm
The astronomical tour will be enabled from Wednesday to Saturday.
