14th European Geoparks Conference

 

Welcome


The Azores archipelago, in the North Atlantic Ocean, has a rich and vast geodiversity and an important geological heritage, supported on a network of geosites dispersed by the nine islands and the surrounding seafloor, with relevant scientific, educational and tourist value.

Volcanoes, calderas, lakes, lava fields, fumaroles, hot springs and thermal waters, volcanic caves, "fajãs", fault scarps and marine fossil deposits, among many others, can be seen on the 121 geosites of the Azores UNESCO Global Geopark.

Thus we invite you all to visit Azores, participate on the EGN Azores 2017 conference and to meet the Azorean people and volcanoes, and enjoy an eruption…of Flavors, Aromas and Experiences!
