The geodiversity of the aspiring Algarvensis Loulé-Silves-Albufeira Geopark dates back 350 million years, when the Algarve mountain range began to be “drawn”, marked by the gravavaks and the clay schist. But history is not only recorded on rocks: this territory has had human habitation inhabited since Prehistory, at least 20,000 years ago.
Against the background of the involvement of local communities, the Municipality of Loulé is committed to enhance this natural and cultural heritage. This project is designed to promote knowledge about the territory through the creation of synergies between cultural, environmental, social, scientific, educational and tourist activities, ensuring the conditions for sustainable development and solidly based on a green and socially balanced economy.
