  • A very good experience for those who like to explore the remote corners of the island without a guide accompanying them, since the guided limited excursion to the surrounding Civic Center and to have lunch in the restaurant of the company that organizes trips. Unfortunately missing posters indicators of those places and of as reach to them, as well as a flat more detailed of them streets, places and attractions of the island. Similarly, it is a neat, tidy place with streets of land with grass clippings and a forest in gallery worthy to be traversed and enjoyed. Worth it penalty go all the island: the quarry, the aerodrome, the cemetery, the lighthouse and course the Centre civic.
