At the Almería Solar Platform Visitor Centre we invite you to discover the largest research centre in the world in the field of concentrating solar technology. 

Here you can learn first-hand about the research projects that are currently underway in the following units:   
  • Concentrating solar systems for the production of photovoltaic electrical energy 
  • Solar desalination
  • Solar water treatment
  • Study of materials
  • Energy efficiency in buildings

The Almería Solar Platform is currently considered to be a worldwide benchmark in the above-mentioned research areas, which is why it is visited every year by numerous groups of university students, schoolchildren, company delegations and tourists looking to get first-hand knowledge of technical developments in solar energy and its applications. 

The tour takes about an hour and a half and includes showing a short video in the auditorium that seats 110 people. 

Visits always need to be pre-booked by telephone (950 387 990) or by e-mail on and they can be made from Monday to Friday with possible visits at the weekend.
