Josep Colomé: Director of OAdM & Head of Engineering
The Observatori Astronòmic del Montsec (OAdM) is a scientific infrastructure that is managed by the IEEC by virtue of an agreement with the Direcció General de Recerca of Generalitat de Catalunya.
It is located 1,570 meters high in the Montsec mountains, 50 km north of the city of Lleida, in the municipality of Sant Esteve de la Sarga and near Ager, in the Catalan pre-Pyrenees. This area is recognized as one of the most suitable of the European continent for astronomical observation, thanks to the combination of weather conditions and the low effect of light pollution. It is, undoubtedly, an exceptional sky.
