The scenic location that the "Hipparchos" Οbservatory is housed, offers at its guests the privilege of tranquility close to nature and breathtaking scenery. The guest has the opportunity to live an experience of observational Astronomy with our instruments of "Hipparchus" observatory, observing the moon, planets, nebulae, galaxies, and many other astronomical objects of the starry sky. Made with care in our star-garden the guest can observe uranography, even find out how a live sundial works and see a static geographical compass orientation, and much more...

Вход в обсерваторию разрешён только с детьми старше 7 лет How to find us: Coming from the highway Rhodes Town to Lindos you pass some traffic lights, after the road to Faliraki Centre and the St. Nektarios Church and about 150 meters away you find the next set of traffic lights where you branch off left and continue the street on the right. Pass Evi-hotel and a small Roundabout. Continue about 350 meters then go right towards Liberia-hotel, on the left there is a Tennis court. After about 650 meters you will find a crossing (Profitis Amos Church) here take the middle street way, so you will find after 250 meters two yellow buildings. Passing by take the street right hand up the hill. Then turn left.

The cafe is great value for money and an amazing experience. The food is average, however it is not really what you are there for. I would recommend drinks and snacks rather than relying on it as your main meal. Unfortunately we were the same...More

Cant recommend here highly enough. Basic food, drinks, cocktails, milkshakes. Once the sun has set, we had the most amazing demonstration of the solar system. Very informative. It cost 4 Euros per adult, 2 Euros per child but well worth the experience. Dont miss it.
