What is a Geopark?
In short, a geopark is an area or region of geological value, recognized by the geopark network and which also has a sustainable development and preservation plan, also counting on local support.
The Villuercas-Ibores-Jara Geopark is a large mountain range (2,544 km2) located in the southeast of the province of Cáceres, between the Tajo and Guadiana basins. Its highest height is the "Risco de La Villuerca" (1,601 m), and from its top there is a magnificent view that includes the mountain ranges, the valleys, the roots and Guadalupe, with the Royal Monastery as a hallmark.

Room 3: Hunting and audiovisual content
