Algorri interpretazio zentruaThis museum is designed to help visitors gain a better knowledge and understanding of nature. It contains an exhibition area describing the different ecosystems which exist in this beautiful coastal town. These include: the mouth of the River Urola, the Bedua island and wetlands, the Santiago dunes and the San Miguel oak grove. Special attention is paid to the impressive tidal plain located between Zumaia and Deba (declared a protected biotope) and Zumaia’s surprising cliffs, which are internationally regarded as a geological jewel.

The centre has two floors. On the ground floor there is an auditorium for screening short films and multimedia documents or for holding conferences, a documentation room and a series of classrooms for holding school workshops. The first floor houses a large exhibition area.

Algorri also offers guided tours of both the visitors’ centre itself and the natural areas it focuses on. Interested parties can reserve a tour in advance, and can even arrange for it to be adapted to their specific demands and interests.
