Long Description:
"It is a highly recommended visit both for the wonderful views of its location, in Cabo Prioriño, at the entrance of the Ferrol estuary, and for the content of the Center, which informs the visitor of the origin and evolution of the defensive batteries of the estuary. and also of a great construction work of our days, such as the outer port.

Nearby are the Prioriño Lighthouse and an ornithological observatory, an observation point for migratory birds."

"Among the birds, those that have adapted to hunting in the forest, such as the goshawks and the long-eared owl, stand out. Also those that live in more open spaces like the peregrine falcon, the common and royal kite. Among the small insectivores we can highlight the nuthatch and the real woodpecker or green woodpecker. On the banks of the waterways of the park, the aquatic blackbird and the kingfisher stand out."
