Geological treasures

Welcome to the Causses du Quercy UNESCO Global Geopark. Here, stone is everywhere ! Geology left its mark on this land, shaping the identity of the Causses du Quercy and concealing true treasures.

As time went by, each geological event left a trace in the Park : fossils, sedimentary stratum, wave and tidal shapes, lapies, phosphate pits, caves and underground rivers … More than 140 GeoSites have been counted !

UNESCO recognised this rich geological heritage by giving to the Park, in 2017, the label of Global Geopark. By traveling through the Causses du Quercy, you will discover real treasures !
