ESO Observatories Route Map

ESO operates observatories at three sites in Chile: Chajnantor, Cerro Paranal and Cerro La Silla (“Cerrro” is the Spanish word for “Mountain”). In addition, ESO will construct the European Extremely Large Telescope (E-ELT) at Cerro Armazones, near Paranal. This map highlights the region in Chile in which the observatories are located and gives a magnified view of that area, showing the airports nearest to the sites and the connecting car routes, as well as the location of ESO offices.
