Landscape of the Pico Island Vineyard Culture Interpretation Centre
The Landscape of the Pico Island Vineyard Culture Interpretation Centre is a building located in one of the most peculiar cores of the Protected Landscape of the Vineyard Culture – Lajido de Santa Luzia.
As the starting point to understand this cultural heritage, classified as World Heritage by UNESCO in 2004, in this Centre the visitors can watch a short documentary about the Vineyard Culture Landscape and learn about the values that it comprises.
There is also available in this Centre a guided tour to the vineyard and fig tree plots, to the inside of a warehouse and a traditional distillery, still in operation, as well as a tour to the core of the Lajido to understand how the building is closely associated with the vineyard and fig tree culture. Along the tour stands out the visit to the lava fields, locally called “lajidos”, where it is possible to see interesting small ledges made by the passage of lava flows, and where there are now several species of endemic flora.
