Overview

If you want to feel how the Earth was formed that we currently step on, know the animals and plants that inhabited it, enjoying an unforgettable journey through time before the arrival of humans in our environment ... do not forget to visit us. The Paleontological Interpretation Center of La Rioja is located in a privileged area, due to the numerous and rich deposits located around; In many cases, unique in the world. The Baryonyx and Hypsilophodon skeletal remains, which are exhibited in the Center and which join the four holotipos (a specimen that has been used to describe a species in a scientific publication) are the only ones to be found in the world: Dadoxylon riojense Conifers), Tempskya riojana (arborescent fern), Paraglauconia vierai (gastropod) and Camerochelys vilanovai (turtle), all of which were originally located in Igea. The La Rioja Paleontological Interpretation Center is designed for you to enjoy, whether you are an expert or neophyte in the field. You can learn and let yourself be surprised with a guided tour, but if you prefer, we also have audio-guide service in Spanish and English. Impressive dinosaur models will welcome you, big explanatory panels full of life and color will introduce you to the matter, authentic footprints and fossils will leave you with your mouth open, but all this ... is just the beginning.
