The city of Granada is famous in Andalusia and in the whole world for its monuments and its historic and cultural buildings; but, another side of the city not many people know is related to science. Placed between Avenida de la Ciencia and Avenida del Mediterráneo, the Science Park hosts numerous exhibitions over many different themes that are related in a more or less direct way to each one’s everyday life.
The feather in the cap of the Park is without any doubt the Planetarium: an ambient which counts on the earliest digital projection technology that permits to project on a cupola a single image of the whole Universe. Thanks to the Uniview platform, that includes exhaustive information regarding the Universe and that permits its reproduction in real time, and to the Powerdome technology, used to control and create the planetarium projection program, the Planetarium of Granada is at the cutting edge from all the points of view.
The Planetarium program includes numerous experiences suitable for both youngsters and adults: ‘Viaje a Mil Millones de Soles’ in which you will be able to visit the most remote limits of our galaxy; ‘El Universo de Escher’ that mixes science, technology and Escher’s artistic inspiration, who is a Dutch artist; ‘Evolución’ in which are commemorated the 400th anniversary of Galileo Galilei’s first sky observations and the 150th anniversary of the publication of Charles Darwin’s ‘On the Origin of Species’; and many other exhibitions studied to satisfy every curiosity.
To conclude, the Science Park is absolutely comparable to the most famous cultural centers of Granada and, without any doubt it worth the effort to visit it with all the rest of the city.
