Situated in the square of the Town Hall, it houses a naturalistic museum accessible to people with disabilities and an audiovisual hall on the ground floor. The route begins with the presentation of the typical environments of the eastern section of the Park, accurately reproduced thanks to photos, illustrations, panels, and naturalistic finds, from the high mountain to the woodland through cliffs, depressions, Mugo pine woods, ravines, subterranean environments.
The route continues with the reconstruction of a shepherd's cave and the characteristic habitat of the Yellow-bellied Toad, a rare amphibian whose call sounds like a howl. Moreover, for adults and children, an audiovisual panel reproduces images and calls of several birds living in the Park. The second and last floor houses, besides the offices, an educational-scientific workshop dedicated to students and researchers, a guest house for researchers, and a scientific library.
It is an ideal departure point for hikes in Valle di Santo Spirito and the visit to Sorgenti del Fiume Verde. More detailed information on hiking routes can be obtained on the spot.
