|Geopark: Culture, History,Geology|
Geopark Villuercas Ibores Jara can be characterised as a big open-air museum. It is full of astonishing rock formations, fossils and remains from the ages of the first human settlements (7000 years before present time); from the Roman and Moorish periods; the times of the travels of the great explorers and the more recent initiatives for industrialization in the 19th century.
A town that still retains wonderful ancient architecture and museums for handicraft and arts is Guadalupe.
For the Geopark there are indicated more than 40 official points of interest - the so-called Geosites. With the selection we make of those you can enjoy the exceptional geological, natural, historical and cultural features of the Geopark. Use the Links-page to see the descriptions of all Geosites (in Spanish and partly in English).
