L'Observatori de l'Ebre, una institució singular

Antoni Roca i Rosell


The Ebro Observatory was set up in 1904 in Roquetes, in the south of
Catalonia, at the Ebro river. The Observatory was linked to the College of the Jesuits,
that was then in Tortosa. The extraordinary features of the history of the Observatory
explain its continuity, but also a number of difficult circumstances. This
communication presents some reflections after the publication of a book celebrating
the centenary of the centre.
