There are displays of handicrafts and educational games for visitors on the information provided in the center, as well as relevant information about restaurants and accommodation.
The center has another area to "zones and species" of the ZEPA (Special Bird Protection Area), there we discover the wildlife that inhabits the territory and in particular the birds and the different habitats and vegetation.
In this area we can find the "space of the senses" where through our own senses we can discover the essence of the nature that surrounds us.
Finally, the center features an interactive scale model and an observatory with a telescope on the terrace of the building.
