AstroCamp is located in an ideal area for astronomical observation, on high peaks in Nerpio, Albatece, Spain. Nerpio is in Southeastern Spain, surrounded by the mountain ranges in Granada and Murcia and the famous Cazorla National Park, largest in Spain and second in Europe.

AstroCamp's goals are:

  • To popularise high-quality astronomical observation
  • To make use of one of the last clean-sky regions in Europe and create a singular environment for astronomical observations
  • To popularise knowledge about space
  • To foster rural development and quality tourism in the region
