Le Géopark Beaujolais
During our holidays in France, Beaujolais has been recognized as a “UNESCO Global Geopark” since 2018. 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. Actions to protect and enhance sites of geological interest are being developed there in connection with the natural and cultural heritage of the territory, in a participatory approach by local populations “.
