House of the Cangrejo de rio
A building designed to meet a two-fold function as a visitor centre and also a shelter for the autochthonous white-clawed crayfish, a protected endangered species. It is also a reception centre for tourists, and houses a restaurant and various exhibition spaces, where visitors can learn about the riverbank ecosystems on high, middle and low ground. Here, the flora and fauna such as otters, wagtails, newts, trout and bermejuela fish accompany the permanent residents of this centre, the autochthonous crayfish, which can be observed as they search for food and shelter at the bottom of the aquarium.
