Sopar amb estrelles mean 'Dinner with stars.' This a popular summer dinner in Barcelona every night from mid June to mid-September from Tuesday to Saturday nights. You can enjoy delicious outdoor dinner under the stars combined with stunning views of Barcelona.

Dinner is accompanied by talks (in Spanish or Catalan only) from notable scientific or cultural speakers and the dinner menu is inspired by the concept of outer space with dishes that represent the rings of Saturn, the moons of Jupiter or other aspects of the Solar System.

After dinner the star gazing begins with tour of the Observatory museum, the art-nouveau room and the dome cupola, where the biggest and oldest telescope in Europe is located.
