The Beigua Regional Natural Park is the largest protected area in Liguria. Geologically, it is an extremely important place for our region with fossils and mineralisations to be found there, and since 2005 it has been part of the international network as a European and World Geopark. Since November 2015, it has been recognised as a UNESCO site, and also listed as a Global Geopark – UNESCO Global Geoparks. It extends between the municipalities of Arenzano, Campo Ligure, Cogoleto, Genoa, Masone, Rossiglione, Sassello, Stella, Tiglieto and Varazze. It is in effect a rocky balcony overlooking the sea, and a place not to be missed as it has amazing biodiversity.
