Geological Heritage & Mining

Given the special geological and geomorphological evolution of the province of Teruel there are many landscapes with geological value, many of them are internationally declared Special Geological Interest Site by UNESCO. We recommend you to visit landscapes such as the Rambla de Barrachina, (near Teruel) the dolines fields in the Sierra de Albarracin orLaguna de Gallocanta or in Maestrazgo Geopark. These are just some examples of the many sites that illustrate the geodiversity of the province.

All these concepts have been included in various innovative projects such as the Museo Minero in Escucha, a mining museum where you can step into an old coal mine- or Aliaga Geopark. It is the first Spanish Geopark remarkable for its captivating natural beauty and where the last 200 million years of geological history of the earth can be observed in situ. These are some of the commitments to combine both tourism and scientific research aimed to make an important part of our natural heritage closer to the audience.

The old mining district of Libros, in the region of Teruel, or iron exploitations in Sierra Menera, which soon will be included in Aragon Cultural Park, can also be visited for knowing the geological evolution and mining heritage in the province.
