CTA sites map

This map displays the sites of the Cherenkov Telescope Array, spread out across the globe. The northern site of the array is located on the island of La Palma in the Canary Islands, and southern site is at ESO's Paranal Observatory in Chile. The site decisions were made after years of careful consideration of extensive studies of the environmental conditions, simulations of the science performance and assessments of construction and operation costs. In addition, Bologna is the host site of the CTA Headquarters and the Science Data Management Centre (SDMC) is located in Zeuthen.
