The Guide of the Portuguese Geological and Mines Sites has the specific objective of giving visibility to a set of initiatives, with different institutional frameworks, dimensions and characteristics, related to geology and mines. The initiatives are of a recreational, cultural, pedagogical and scientific nature, developed in abandoned or in operation mines; museums; relevant natural landscapes, R&D centres, etc..

The creation of a web platform is a first step to give a public dimension to these initiatives.

The information provided is the responsibility of the partners who administer the different sites.
