A virtual tour of this protected area, from its most inland area to its mouth.

Villaviciosa Estuary Partial Nature Reserve Reception and Interpretation Centre is located on the left bank of the estuary, beside the road leading to El Puntal Harbour.

The centre offers visitors documented information on the characteristics of the estuary, its formation, plant life and wildlife. In addition, the centre has been equipped with large aquariums allowing visitors to recognize in situ the species that inhabit its waters, as well as a computer model illustrating the geological process of the formation of the estuary.

There is also audio-visual documentation available, which can be enjoyed in the centre's comfortable rooms.

The centre is staffed by a nature guide at all times to advise visitors on how to benefit from the many possibilities for enjoying nature offered by the reserve.
