Liguria is a land of contrasts, all to be explored. In fact, in addition to the seaside destinations, mountain areas rich in charm and natural beauty also deserve great attention. As in the case of Beigua Regional Nature Park, the largest protected natural area of Liguria, which jealously holds the geological history of this region.
Everything speaks in Beigua Park, UNESCO Heritage since 2015: every rocky outcrop, minerals, fossil fuels and spectacular shapes molded uninterrupted by the effect of exogenous agents.
For the outstanding geological heritage, in March 2005 the Beigua district became part of international networks such as the European and World Geoparks.
The Geopark includes the whole surface classified as Regional Natural Park of Beigua as well as a large portion of territory functionally connected to the same Park. In fact, Beigua Geopark represents a district comprised of 10 municipal territories that affect two different provinces (Genoa and Savona).
An extension of the territory of 39,230 hectares, involving the municipalities of Arenzano, Campo Ligure, Cogoleto, Genoa, Masone, Rossiglione, Sassello, Stella, Tiglieto and Varazze.
From this spectacular natural balcony made up of mountains you also enjoy the view of the sea; twenty-six miles of mountain ridges that are one of the richest areas of geodiversity and biodiversity in the region, just off the Ligurian Riviera.
The conservation and enhancement initiatives of the geological heritage of Beigua Geopark are part of a wider and more complex strategy for the protection of the natural and historical-cultural heritage. This is achieved through specific territorial planning and management measures aimed at the active protection of environmental resources and at the same time local socio-economic development.
Among the initiatives proposed, we point out a photography and birdwatching trip, scheduled for Sunday 29 October.
Along the Nature Trail of Pratorotondo, along with the guide and photographer naturalist Marco Bertolini, you will learn to best immortalize the beech trees, mushrooms and animals encountered during the photography treking dedicated to the shades of autumn.
Prepare your backpack and camera, the atmosphere of this fascinating season awaits you!
