A centre that is part of its environment
La Luz Visitor Center is fully integrated into the landscape thanks to the materials that configure it. Being immersed in a place with views of interest in all directions, it has been conceived externally as a privileged observatory, as its interior design is planned based on an interior route to show how much interest there is and was in the area. The space is distributed over three floors:
Ground floor: Exhibition space dedicated to different thematic and historical axes.
First floor: Audiovisual room.
Second floor: Panoramic terraces.
