Stargazing at Paderne’s Castle

Stargazing at Paderne’s Castle

On the night of the 10th of August, Paderne’s Castle will be the main point to watch a beautiful meteor shower. This phenomenon occurs every year in August, when the Earth passes the trail of the Swift-Tuttle comet.

 

Dozens of shooting stars per hour can be observed by telescope, starting at 8:30pm. At 9:30pm, Ermida do Castelo would also host a Classical Guitar Recital starring Rui Mourinho.

 

Entrance is free, so come and enjoy this amazing show done by Mother Nature herself.

 

This event is organized by the Albufeira Municipal Council – Municipal Archaeological Museum, with the support of the Albufeira Astronomy Club.
