Accessing natural and cultural heritage
Throughout Europe, tourism is becoming more oriented to conserving, protecting, promoting and developing natural and cultural heritage (geotourism). The Geopark of Psiloritis is a prime geotourism destination; its prehistoric rock formations and fossilised corals make it not just a natural wonder, but a testament to the origins of human civilization. Since 2017, the EU has launched a joint initiative with this Cretan heritage site, along with 3 other Geoparks, the Museum of Natural History of Crete and the Cyprus Forestry Department. GEO-IN aims to promote geotourism across these regions, by upgrading, promoting and enriching the sites themselves.
