LOCATION OF e-EyE
The astronomical complex e-EyE is situated in Southwest Spain, in the autonomous community of Extremadura, within the Badajoz province, at the municipal terminal of Fregenal de la Sierra. Located at the heart of the Southwest Extremaduran pastures, surrounded by land full of helm oak trees, its sky offers darkness with SQM over magnitude 21, promoting deep, high-quality observations.
We are in one of the few optimum places left in Europe, where the ideal conditions are combined for high-quality Astronomical observation. The nearby rural towns, Fregenal de la Sierra and Higuera la Real, are very small, but at the same time offer all the necessary services: healthcare, culture, gastronomy, etc.
Given the natural surroundings and the distance to surrounding towns, the e-EyE Astronomical Complex guarantees a sky clear of ambient contaminants, with a scarce level of dust and suspended aerosols. The commitment for sustainable development and the inclusion of the town Fregenal de la Sierra in the Starlight project, guarantees the future quality of the sky.
