In the first place we will answer a query which no doubt you have in mind as you read this: what is a geosite?
A geosite or site of geological interest (Lugar de Interés Geológico, LIG) can be defined as an area which is included in the geological heritage of a place or region and which has one or two important features of proven importance in the geological history of the region.
In other words, a geosite is a window onto the past, a place where you can observe the Earth from a completely new perspective and become aware of the incredible history that the planet has had over millions of years.
At the Villuercas-Ibores-Jara Global Geopark of the UNESCO we have 50 geosites scattered over a surface area of 2,500 square kilometres. They will serve you as a guide to explore and discover this territory with its internationally recognised rich geodiversity. Start this incredible journey of discovery!
