Our territory

The Granada Geopark covers the north half of the province of Granada.

Different geologists began to show interest on the geographical peculiarities of this land more than  150 years ago.

While the rest of Europe was under glaciation, here we had the circumstances for a closed lake to open to a river forming the badlands that today we can visit like nowhere else in Europe.

“In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks”, John Muir.
