Specola Museum of Astronomy

Presentation

We have always looked at the sky seeking to find out its secrets, and wondering about the planets and the stars. The Specola Tower was built for this very purpose, as a place from which to observe the movements of the planets and study astronomy. In its rooms, including the famous Meridian Room, you will see a wealth of instruments that were once used by astronomers, such as armillary spheres or wooden telescopes.
