    This is a good attraction, educational and reasonably priced. As divers we found the second display area dealing with the underwater effects of the Restinga eruption especially interesting.

    The museum of the Guinea village is very interesting and worth a visit. The conservation effort of the local lizards is admirable (although the lizards themselves were a bit of a let down, but it might just be because we grew up with larger lizards in Africa). Unfortunately, the tour was only in Spanish (although the tour guide made a great effort to give us a quick summary in English at each stop), which made the tour feel a bit like wasted time for us - it would definitely be good to have at least one English tour in a day.

    Starting in the beautiful morning light in the pine forrest the guide took us downhill in a landscape where we here and there came up to signs of the Bimbaches' life. Caves that gave them shelter, places where they gathered, lots of shells from the seafood they ate and fragments of pots for the water they drank and the rock carvings. Those started our imagination. Right here, someone sat and carved these pictures and signs. What was occuping that persons mind? Was he or she thinking how long will the carvings last? Who will look at them and what will they think ...?

    Later, after the return to the El Julan center by the 4x4, we had a tase of local wine, cheese and cake on the terrace. Delicious! And in the center we could also watch a short movie and an interesting exhibition about the Bimbaches and their world.

    I can strongly recommend a visit to El Julan for the Center, for the Tour and for the Landscape. Book in advance to be sure there is a guided tour!

    I visited this "Centro de Interpretacion" on November 8th, 2019: I had planned to stay over there 20 minutes and ended by remaining for more than 2 hours. The display is great with much information about the shaping of the social and natural environment of El Hierro across time. The exhibit - in Spanish and English - also includes small videos and gives insight over several unusual aspects of El Hierro, e.g. the way how the populace had fun and danced in the past, when El Hierro was one of the most isolated places in Spain.
    A special note of thanks to the staff - in particular to Mr. Luis - who during my visit took the time to delve into and explain in depth the meaning of many items on display and added even more information: he is a very knowledgeable and kind person, passionate about his role, about the "Centro de Interpretacion" where he works and more in general about El Hierro.
    I highly recommend everyone in El Hierro to find the time to visit the "Centro de Interpretacion de la Reserva de La Biosfera" in Isora (open Tuesdays-Sundays 10.00 am-06.00 pm; closed on Mondays), which may be coupled with a visit to El Mirador De Isora, with spectacular views on Las Playas cliffs.
