Development of the activity

At La Dehesa Experiences we are incredibly fortunate to have been recognized as Starlight accommodation in Cordoba, a very special label that gives our guests the opportunity to discover truly spectacular and unpolluted skies, something rare and even scarce.

Sierra Morena is undoubtedly a unique environment for many reasons. And one of them is the immense natural reserve also known as dehesa. The dehesa is shaped as a strategic enclave, a key point where to be able to enjoy the stars in their maximum splendor. Therefore, from our Starlight accommodation in Cordoba, located in the municipality of Adamuz, we propose an activity that will captivate you from the first moment. It is not even necessary to leave the complex of La Dehesa Experiences, because our farm has its own oak forest, where you can walk and freely enjoy the beauty of the nature that surrounds us.

Sunset

This activity begins at the end of the sunset, an unbeatable moment to enjoy the spectacular sunsets of Sierra Morena. The wide range of warm colors and beautiful shades will give you some amazing postcard images, worthy, of course, to be immortalized. And the fact is that la dehesa dresses up in the twilight of the afternoon. You can't miss it.

Night walk and stargazing

Then, a brief but pleasant and intense walk in the company of our guides, experts in astronomy, who will later give you all the explanations, facts and curiosities about this dazzling sky that reigns over us. Our galaxy hides so many and so many beautiful mythological stories you would be surprised to hear what the stars can reveal to us. Forbidden romances, tender loves, bloody wars, dangerous envy, impossible desires, broken longings... Everything a fantastic world to discover and with which you will be pleasantly impressed. We guarantee it.

It is a magical walk under the stars that combines the serenity of night hiking with the relaxation and admiration that comes from observing the sky in its stillness, omnipresence and majesty. The Starlight Dehesa experience is suitable for all audiences due to its interactive, educational and entertaining nature. From the youngest to the oldest, everyone will be truly delighted with this fantastic experience. We hope you like as much as we do this beautiful activity that we have prepared for you from our Starlight accommodation in Cordoba. 

In our Starlight lodging in Cordoba you will be able to observe:

Throughout the year

Big Dipper

This constellation is also known as the Major Cart and is one of the constellations that can be observed throughout the year in the northern hemisphere. It is easily recognized because by joining the seven stars that make it up we can clearly see the shape of a chariot, a dipper or a ladle. The Big Dipper is the third largest constellation in our skies.

The stars that make up the dipper of this boreal constellation are Mizar, Alioth, Alkaid, Megrez, Phecda, Merak and Dubhe. The last two are used to locate the famous pole star, which is why this constellation is called circumpolar. The other five main stars, meanwhile, are characterized by their own common motion towards a point in the constellation of Sagittarius.

Mythologically, it is related to the Greek myth of Callisto, a beautiful nymph who made the great mistake of falling in love with Zeus, and whose audacity was punished by Heras, the wife of the supreme Greek God, with the misfortune of wandering eternally through the forests transformed into a bear.

Ursa Minor

This constellation is also observed in the northern hemisphere throughout the year. Like the Big Dipper, its seven stars also form a kind of cart, dipper or ladle almost identical to that of the Big Dipper but this time more inclined.

Its main and best known element is the pole star, also called Polaris. The pole star is the brightest star in the constellation and the most prominent in the firmament. This star is located in the prolongation of the Earth's axis, so it remains almost fixed in the sky and always points to the geographic north pole. Thus, the pole star has been used by travelers and navigators in the past, or even shepherds more recently, as a reference point on their paths and wanderings.

Mythology offers us a version very similar to that of the myth of Callisto and the Big Dipper, this time with the character of Phoenice, transformed into a bear by Artemis, who also fell in love with Zeus.

Orion

Perhaps the best known constellation worldwide since, in addition to being one of the brightest and most prominent, it is visible in both hemispheres (in winter in the north and in summer in the southern hemisphere). The Hunter, as this constellation is commonly known, seems to be about to shoot an arrow. The Hunter Orion is near the constellation Eridanus River, and appears to be supported by his two hunting dogs Canis Maior and Canis Minor, as they fight against the constellation Taurus.

According to Greek mythology, Orion claims to be the best hunter in the world. Hera, Zeus' wife, responds by sending him a scorpion, which kills Orion. Zeus decides to put Orion and the scorpion in the sky, thus turning this second character into the constellation Scorpius.
