The IAC is pleased to welcome the general public, students, and communications media to its observatories: Teide Observatory in Izaña (Tenerife) and Roque de los Muchachos Observatory in Garafía (La Palma). In some cases it is also possible to visit the central headquarters of this research centre in La Laguna (Tenerife).

Visits are scheduled so as not to interrupt the workflow at these scientific facilities. For this reason, prior authorization must be requested through the following procedure.
