HOW TO VISIT ALBA

The ALBA Synchrotron organizes guided tours where visitors can walk through the experiment hall and discover the different beamlines and equipment of the facility.

Tours are free and last approximately one hour and 30 minutes. There is a maximum of 25 people per guided tour. A maximum of two groups can be booked.

Due to the high demand, they are addressed only to high school groups, university students and researchers, as well as professional and cultural associations. If you want to visit us but you do not belong to any of these targets, you can join us on the ALBA Open Day.

Guided tours are only available from Monday to Friday and on those days when there are no scientific activities at ALBA. There are no visits on Saturdays and Sundays.
