This information centre really adds the The Timanfaya experience, giving the background, and additional data that puts the history (and future) of the Island as well as Timanfaya in context.

Just a few kilometres north of the turn off for the Timanfaya centre is this interesting exhibition with information boards that really adds a lot to understanding of the area - and it is all free! Two highlights for us - the audi/visual display that...More
