On 27 June 2023, the presiding judges of the Spanish High Courts of Justice (TSJ) visited the Roque de los Muchachos Observatory to see its facilities and telescopes. 

The Director of the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias, Rafael Rebolo, received the group of judges accompanied by the Observatory administrator, Juan Carlos Pérez Arencibia, and the Mayor of Garafía, José Angel Sánchez, who was also joined by three councillors from his Corporation.

They then went to the Gran Telescopio Canarias, GTC, where they interacted with the operators in the control room and then went to the dome to see the inside of the telescope.

The itinerary continued to the peak of Roque de los Muchachos and concluded with a short visit to the Cherenkov telescopes (LST-1 and MAGIC 1 and 2). At both telescopes they received information about the research being carried out by their scientific research staff.
