Unprecedented Vuelta finale
Located at a height of almost 2,000 metres, the Javalambre Astrophysics Observatory can be seen from the town of Arcos de las Salinas. This science centre, which has been operating for almost thirty years, is dedicated to mapping stars through the two telescopes that stand out in the area’s mountainous landscape. The Javalambre range in Teruel, where the observatory is located, is featuring in La Vuelta for the very first time. With its 12 kilometres and an average incline of 7%, it promises to be an exciting stage for enthusiasts and a tough one for a peloton that will be closer than ever to the stars.
