Located in an exceptional heritage building with a spectacular view of the St. Lawrence River, it is the region’s only astronomy observatory open to the public. Activities are organized by the Centre d’études collégiales en Charlevoix (Cégep), in partnership with Fairmont Le Manoir Richelieu. The observatory hosts an interactive introductory presentation on astronomy with superb photographs, in the multimedia room. When skies are clear, we help you discover the most beautiful celestial objects, with your own eyes. All day long, the observatory also offers observation of the Sun through an adapted telescope. It is also an opportunity to go on an interplanetary journey with our solar system trail, located at Fairmont Le Manoir Richelieu. Great family moments ahead!
