Created to promote aspects such as biophysical diversity and all the scenic splendour of the Avencas Biophysical Research Area (ZIBA), the Pedra do Sal Environmental Study Centre (CIAPS) is unique for its biological, geological and geophysical characteristics, so much so that in 2007 it was added to the GR11-E9, also known as the E9 European Long Distance Path, a footpath that links one side of the continent with the other.

The centre gives visitors the chance to watch and even handle species inhabiting the ZIBA area such as starfish and sea urchins.

Facilities include a cafeteria, exhibition hall and auditorium. Outside, a dedicated footpath gives visitors the chance to learn more about this part of the coast by walking along the cliffs.

Opening hours: 10:00 am-1:00 pm and 2:00 pm-5:00 pm Tuesday to Friday (closes 6:00 pm at weekends) /
2:00 pm-5:00 pm on public holidays
