A geosite is a place or an area of particular geological or geomorphological interest within the territory. We can define geosites as an asset of the landscape heritage of a Park or indeed natural architectural elements of great scientific or environmental value with references of a cultural nature, or for issues related to educational and recreational activities. They are the true diversity of the territory, whether they have been shaped over millennia of history by atmospheric agents or whether they still retain their natural structure, at least in this geological era and despite of long geodynamic, seismic or tectonic processes. The main interest of a geosite is its conservation.
The studies and the census of the Aspromonte National Park Authority has classified 232 naturalistic sites, 89 geosites of significant geological interest, a number destined to increase, and 8 of these, described below, which unique characteristics and peculiarities such as beeing classified of international relevance.
