Boqueirão Environmental Interpretation Centre

zoom in


The Boqueirão Environmental Interpretation Centre (CIAB) was created in the tanks used to store the whale´s oil melted in the Boqueirão Whaling Station. It is a space dedicated to the promotion and knowledge of the most interesting environmental places of the island, with highlight to the marine environments.

Here you can learn about resident and migratory birds, living beings that live in the intertidal zone and water column, cetaceans and hydrothermal vents. It is a privileged place for the promotion of scientific knowledge, enriching the experience of those who visit the Nature Park.

The CIAB was chosen to integrate the "Architecture Guide –South and Islands of Portugal" in 2011; it also integrated the “Mostra Ibérica de Património Arquitéctonico – La MIPA” project, within the Lisbon Architecture Triennale 2013 "Close, Closer"; and it was referenced/published on several websites and trade magazines.
