CÁCERES, 17 Nov.
Representatives from the Basque Coast Geopark, which extends along the coastal strip between Deva and Zumaya, and Las Loras Geopark, located in the provinces of Palencia and Burgos (Castilla y León), visited the Villuercas-Ibores-Jara UNESCO Global Geopark this week to learn about the work being carried out in the Extremadura geopark.
Over the course of two days, a delegation from the Basque and Castilla y León geoparks had the opportunity to explore different sites and geosites in Villuercas-Ibores-Jara, in order to learn about the work and involvement of all stakeholders in the region, including institutions, educational institutions, companies, and private and public entities.
The Vice President and Deputy for Territory, Equality and Culture, Esther Gutiérrez, participated in some of the sessions and emphasized "the importance and the results that are being seen from working from the ground up as the best way to sustain population in the region," which is precisely the approach being followed in the Villuercas-Ibores-Jara Geopark.
The visiting geoparks have expressed their gratitude to the Extremadura geopark for their reception and hospitality through their social media channels, with messages such as "it has been a privilege to be able to enjoy your land and your hospitality," as reported by the Cáceres council.
