GalileoObservatory-GTAV

The observatory as seen from East Galileo Avenue.

"Set up high in the Vinewood Hills with stunning views of the city, the Galileo Observatory was constructed at the end of the 19th century to make astronomy more accessible to the general public, but mostly now serves as a reminder of what little progress has been made in space exploration in the past 40 years"
―GTA V digital manual

The Galileo Observatory is a facility featured in Grand Theft Auto V. It is located in Vinewood Hills, north of Los Santos. It is based on the real life Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles, California. It is named after Galileo Galilei, an Italian astronomer, physicist, mathematician and philosopher, who also invented the telescope.

It sits in a fairly central position atop one of the highest points in the Vinewood Hills; this naturally commands the observatory with a far reaching view across all of Los Santos, also making it a popular tourist attraction and place of interest in San Andreas. A concrete sculpture can be found in front of the observatory, a replica of the real life Astronomers Monument in the Griffith Observatory. Backpackers and trippers can be found in the Arthur's Pass Trails, located north of the facility.
