Quaternary Geopark of the North Valleys of Granada

We could say that the Geopark of the Quaternary is a vast territory. It has more than 1.400 square kilometers of extension, whose geological, topographical, landscape, paleontological, patrimonial and cultural values are common. They are delimited by the rivers Fardes and minor Guadiana. Ancient rivers without exit to the sea formed 5.3 million years ago an extensive lake known as Thetis.

PANTANO DEL NEGRATIN

Swamp del Negratín

The most recent rivers, such as the Gor River, where the village of Gorafe is located in the center of the Geopark, have modeled this landscape in a constant way, during the last half million years, forming a singular territory characterized by its aridity, in which impressive gullies are present. The exposed rocks in the fluvial valleys of the Quaternary Geopark tell the story of the geological evolution, of ancient Mesozoic seas and life during the Quaternary.
