Garagüeta Holly Forest Park Visitor’s Centre (Arévalo de la Sierra)

This centre was created for the visitor to know all the secrets of Garagüeta and its surroundings. The Garagüeta Holly Forest Park Visitor’s Centre first opened its doors to the public in April 2014 and is part of the Network of Park Houses of Castile and Leon.

 

The centre is located in the middle of the village of Arévalo de la Sierra near the Town Hall. The village’s narrow streets make it advisable to leave the vehicle in the free parking lot located next to the Chapel of Santo Cristo (there are signs that indicate where both the parking lot and the centre are located).

 

The centre is in the old teacher’s house, and it is a bioclimatic building which was purposely built to be energy efficient.

 

The building has three floors with the following units in each of them:

Ground floor:  boiler room (biomass) and facilities, helpdesk, Eco-shop, cafeteria, restrooms, lockers and an A-V room.
First floor: workshop and library,
Exhibition area 1: Park house sustainability. An example of bioclimatic construction: the necessary resources are used to show visitors the tools used to make this centre a sustainable space.
