The Interpretation Center of Priolo was opened to the public in 2007, and is today the gateway to the largest protected area of the Lands of Priolo, promoting informed and sustainable visitation of this territory. It is coordinated by the Portuguese Society for the Study of Birds - SPEA, a non-profit Non-Governmental Organization that is closely connected to the conservation of the Azores Bullfinch, Priolo as it is known in portuguese.
Inside the center, you will have access to a nice exhibition, you can also enjoy a welcoming reception area with a shop and a small bar and you can also visit the "House of Priolo".
