Whaling Station

In this former whaling station, currently known as Centro do Mar, one can learn about the whole process of transforming cetaceans, from dismantling to collecting ambergris and oil.

This center exhibits the machinery used in this process, namely chairs and several machines for grinding, boiling, pressing and drying sperm whale meat. There is also a photographic exhibition that helps understanding this extinct activity. In addition, a full-scale replica of a sperm whale is displayed.
