Foz Azul Local Nature Reserve Interpretive Center

The former Assenta Tax Guard post was converted into an Interpretation Center for the Foz Azul Local Nature Reserve, with the aim of developing and promoting activities to raise environmental awareness and promote the cultural traditions of the region, associated with the sea. This interpretive center aims to increase local oceanic and coastal literacy, based on an integrated approach and focused on aspects of training, education, awareness and sensitization of tourists and residents. This equipment is a privileged space to deepen knowledge about coastal ecosystems, paleontology and the culture and traditions of coastal communities through educational, training and scientific activities.
