Astronomy and bats at the Forteresse de Salses


20th August at 14h00 - 21st August at 00h00

| 8€

Nuit de l’astronomie et de la chauve-souris

On Tuesday 20th August, as the scorching sun sinks behind the mountains, the Forteresse de Salses will stay open for a unique and exciting night of discovery.

Observe and contemplate the wonders of the night sky, learn about the summer constellations and make a wish on a shooting star.

Then bring your focus back down to Earth with a study of the dozen bat species (7 of which are protected) that call the Forteresse their home.

But no need to wait for dusk to join in the actions- workshops and activities will be taking place throughout the day from 2pm.
