It was designed for visitors to know the geological, biological and human history of Fajas de Sao Jorge, in particular, the fajas da Caldeira de Santo Cristo and Cubres. The building results from the reconstruction of an old housing and the respective support house, which retains the original and traditional frontage. It was a prominent target in several websites and architecture magazines and was the cover of the C3 Korean magazine. Integrated the "Mostra Iberica de Patrimonio Arquitectonico - La MIPA" project, within the Lisbon Architecture Triennale 2013 "Close, Closer." At the reception you can enjoy a rest area and see the space which recreates an old oven, decorated with reproductions of the support tools. In the exhibition room, visitors can find technical information in a multimedia kiosk and take a trip through time from the formation of fajas up to today.

At nterpretation center I found an employee who told me that this building is just a souvenir shop. Which in practice are five / six gadgets hanging on the wall. Apparently a useless place.
