The caves provide a very well organized visit, lasting about 30 minutes, duly conducted by specialized guides. The visit supplements the repetitive monotony of a little diversified visual offer, with the creation of a mysterious path, properly illuminated, referencing it with well-chosen music and a certain illumination with magical architectures and, mainly, with the telluric imaginary of the Center of the Earth.
The Center of Volcanism is located next to the Caves of São Vicente, on the cliff on the other side of Ribeira de São Vicente in a charming Village of the North Coast of Madeira, at the bottom of the valley, where the formation of the Island began. It combines culture and knowledge with leisure and animation, in a pavilion that allows the approximately 90 visitors to watch, in a pedagogical and playful way, the audiovisual shows that recreate the geological evolution of the caves, the eruption of a volcano and also the simulation of the birth of the Madeira Archipelago.
