Geoparco Campotenese

The 75 geosites in the Park area represent an inestimable landscape and environmental value, the first evidence of the territory's exceptional biodiversity and great historical, anthropological and cultural wealth.

The identified geosites have been organised in homogeneous territorial systems, from a geological and geographical point of view, and correlated with the other landscape-environmental and historical-cultural peculiarities of the territory.
The landscapes are inscribed in such evocative and constantly changing scenarios that some of them can be considered unique, making the Park one of the most important sites of interest for earth sciences and a valid example for Geotourism.
