This label recognizes the Beaujolais region as a remarkable geological heritage. “For UNESCO, within the framework of the Geopark label” a site can be qualified as a geosite with regard to its scientific interest, its rarity, its educational scope, its aesthetic value. Sites of ecological, archaeological, historical and cultural significance must necessarily be included as additional geosites as representing intangible geological heritage.
