Centro de Interpretación Racó de l'Olla

Valencia Province

This interpretation centre is the gateway to a sizeable lagoon and has some information on the park ecosystem, a short walking path, a tower you can climb for views and a birdwatching hide. It's on the left just after you turn off to El Palmar from the main CV500.
